Platinum selling country star and 604 Records recording artist Dallas Smith announced the 2017 Side Effects Tour, presented by Old Camp Whiskey.
The tour kicks off in Halifax Oct. 12 and stops in 26 cities across the country, including the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton Nov. 17. The national tour will see special guests Lauren Alaina, James Barker Band, Cold Creek County, Michael Ray and The Cadillac Three join Smith for select dates.
The Side Effects Tour announcement comes on the heels of Smith’s fourth No.1 single at Canadian country radio with Sky Stays This Blue, a first for a Canadian male country artist.
Smith became the first Canadian artist in both the Nielsen BDS and Mediabase era to have three consecutive No.1 singles and the first Canadian country artist to have three No.1 singles from the same album (Side Effects).
The album showcases Smith’s incredible artistry and confirms he’s in his own lane – earning critical acclaim, commercial success and he lit up the stage during the 2017 Juno Awards national broadcast in Ottawa earlier this year.
The ‘side effects’ of Smith’s performance included a 19 per cent increase in streams of the single as well as 137 per cent increase in sales of the track, according to Nielsen.

Currently nominated for four Canadian Country Music Association Awards including Male Artist of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year and the Apple Music Fans’ Choice Award, Smith will take the stage for what will surely be another memorable performance when the CCMA Awards show hits Saskatoon Sept. 10.
