Kimberley in the running for CMT concert contest

One Horse Town contest would bring Dean Brody for free concert

Kimberley could win the right to host a free Dean Brody concert.

Folks from Country Music Television were in Kimberley on Thursday this week to scope out potential sites for a Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee and The River Town Saints concert in September.

That is, if Kimberley wins the right to host the concert. It’s all part of the Molson Coors One Horse Town event, that will bring the country music stars to the community that wins a nation-wide vote. It’s set up similar to the Kraft Hockeyville contest, where cities from regions across Canada compete.

“Kimberley is the BC region representative in the contest,” said Mayor Don McCormick. “That’s a big deal. We don’t have all the details yet, voting doesn’t open until next week, but I spoke to the people from Country Music Television on Thursday.”

The event was launched last year with a concert in Lacombe, Alberta. The concert is free, but McCormick says, should Kimberley win the concert, you need to register online with a Kimberley postal code to get a ticket. Tickets would limited to a maximum of 2,000.

The Bulletin will publish contest details, as well as how to vote, as soon as they are available. Stay tuned.
