Jess Moskaluke climbs to #3 on this week’s SiriusXM Most Wanted list and Dallas Smith keeps fighting it out with James Barker Band for #1. Congrats to our pal Dallas Smith, who just became the first Canadian male country artist to have three #1 hits off one record with his third single, “Side Effects.” That also makes him the first Canadian Country artist to have back to back #1 singles since Shania Twain in 1997/1998.

SiriusXM House Canadian Music Week Preview

It’s not too late to get tickets to our SiriusXM House at The Great Hall in Toronto during Canadian Music Week. We’ve got an intimate night with High Valley, Jess Moskaluke & Madeline Merlo planned for Saturday April 22nd!

High Valley will bring the brothers from Peace River, Alberta back to Toronto to showcase material that’s coming out of their international record deal.  Brad & Curtis have picked up back-to-back wins at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards, they have seven Top 10 singles, two Juno nods, and maybe even some new music:
