Platinum selling country star, and 604 Records recording artist Dallas Smith has lots to celebrate as he notches his 4th career #1 and third consecutive chart topper with the soaring hit “Sky Stays This Blue” on both the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase Country radio charts this week.
Appealing to audiences far beyond the boundaries with sonic layers and a stadium sized voice, Smith not only celebrates his fourth #1 single at Country radio in Canada, but becomes the FIRST CANADIAN ARTIST in both the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase era, to have three consecutive #1 singles and ONLY Canadian male Country artist to have four #1 singles.
Smith is also the first Canadian male Country artist to have three back to back #1 singles from the same album in both the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase era.
“Thank you SO MUCH to Canadian Country radio and all of my fans here at home,” shares Smith. “The continued support is something that I don’t take for granted and something that will never be lost on both my family and I. The quality of Country music that Canada is producing right now is something we as a whole should be enormously proud of.”
“Sky Stays This Blue” celebrates the platinum-selling entertainer’s real life relationship with 3 year old daughter Vayda and is from 2016’s Top-Selling Canadian Country album “Side Effects” (based on first week sales). The album (Side Effects – 604 Records) – released one year ago and produced by studio ace and long-time collaborator Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line), features 12 tracks, including the albums first #1 single “Autograph” – the only #1 track from a Canadian Country artist in 2016 and the #1 hit “Side Effects”.
The album showcases Smith’s incredible artistry and confirms he’s in his own lane – earning critical acclaim, commercial success and one of the most talked about journeys in Canadian country music.
On Father’s Day, Smith, a father of two, shared his personal home movie as the video premiere for “Sky Stays This Blue”. Filmed by award winning director and Vayda’s Godfather Stephano Barberis, the video captures cherished moments filled with love and adoration.
“This video means everything to me,” shared Smith. “Vayda is going to have this memory for the rest of her life as a reminder of how much she’s loved and I will cherish the moments we captured forever.”
