Juno award winning singer and Langley resident Dallas Smith will be travelling across the province this December on the CP Holiday Train.
Smith will perform at 31 different stops with country artist Terri Clark, beginning in Calgary, Alta on Dec. 8, and finishing in Port Coquitlam on Dec. 17.
Smith was recently named CCMA Entertainer of the Year as well as Male Artist of the Year. Both Clark and Smith collaborated on the 2018 song “One Drink Ago.”
The annual train trek across the country departs from Montreal and features multiple lines that dip down into the United States – all of them decked out with Christmas lights, hosting live performances, and collecting items for the food bank.
Clayton Heights country singer JoJo Mason toured with the train last Christmas.
For the prairie stretch this time around, Scott Helman and Maple Ridge native Madeline Merlo will be performing.
