On July 6, 2009 Paul Brandt graced Dawson Creek with his country music at the Encana Events Center. Opening for him was up and coming country singer Jason Blaine from Pembroke, Ontario who is an amazing entertainer. He just released his second album and one day will be a big artist. Some of the songs he played include That’s what I do, Heartache Like Mine, My First Car and Give it to me. He is also very good looking, which helps the eyes a little.
Paul Brandt came on stage at around 8:15 and played for over an hour and a half. He played many of his old songs including Alberta Bound, My Heart Has a History and Canadian Man. Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Brandt made his way to Nashville to get a name for himself and has won many awards for his songs. Brandt was very interactive with the crowd and talked about his experience in Dawson Creek the last time he was here. Apparently he was on stage last time and a small petit woman, who actually turned out to be a big momma, pulled him off stage but the nice citizens put him back up again to keep playing. This is just some of the humor that he shared with the crowd. Besides the turnout, the concert was far from a disappointment. Less then 2000 people filled the 5000 capacity seats, but those people who didn’t attend sure missed a good show. I will definitely be attending the next show that Paul Brandt or Jason Blaine hold in Dawson Creek.
