Dean Brody Says ‘Love Would Be Enough’ With New Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Dean Brody is debuting a brand new video from his current album, Gypsy Road, and Taste of Country readers get to see the clip for the new track before anyone else.
Brody has scored huge success in his native Canada with Gypsy Road, which has seen hit singles already in "Upside Down" and "Bring Down the House," both of which peaked inside the Top 10 on the Canada Country chart. "Love Would Be Enough" is the third single from Brody's fifth studio album, and it's a step in a different direction for the Canadian country star.
The singer-songwriter won twin CCMA and Juno awards for Country Album of the Year for his fourth album, Crop Circles. He took a different approach for Gypsy Road, writing "Upside Down" and "Monterey" on ukulele, while "Love Would Be Enough" was written on banjo instead of Brody's usual guitar.
He acknowledges that his music career hasn't always been easy, especially when dealing with immigration and label problems in Nashville while trying to pursue his country music goals.
"There was a point in my career where it seemed like I had invested what might have been wasted time chasing a dream,” Brody says. “I saw friends and others my age living the responsible suburban life: two cars, a mortgage, retirement savings and vacations days stacking up. And I was spending every dollar on a long shot in a country not my own. I had a small family and at points felt completely irresponsible as a father and husband," he admits.
“Now, we have a home on the ocean. Sometimes I walk the land and sit down by the water and think ‘Wow. This dream actually happened. All those hard and lonely times were worth it.’"
Brody is set to perform at the Sirius XM Kickoff Party at the 2015 CFL Grey Cup on Nov. 29, and at Nashville's legendary Grand Ole Opry on Feb. 19, 2016. Check out the video for "Love Would Be Enough" above, and catch up with Brody at his official website, Twitter or Facebook.
