Canadian country band, Emerson Drive, played to a crowd of adoring fans June 29 at the Delburne Agriplex to celebrate the Town’s centennial.

Emerson Drive played to a sold out crowd June 29 at Delburne Agriplex to help celebrate the Town’s 100th birthday.
In an interview with the band before the concert, lead singer, Brad Mates, said the band came together because of “fate”.
Mates, originally from Grand Prairie, Alberta, and band members live in Nashville, Tennessee and have been living there for 10 years writing and recording music.
“We’ve been gone a long time and kind of lost touch with some of our fan base in Canada,” said Mates. “It’s been nice to play more shows closer to home.”
The band arrived in Delburne after travelling overnight from Dauphin, Manitoba where they were one of the headliners at the Dauphin Country Fest June 28.
Emerson Drive comprised of Mates (lead vocals), Danick Dupelle (guitar and background vocals), David Pichette (fiddle), Mike Melancon (drums) and Dale Wallace (keyboard and background vocals), recently released “Roll”, an 11-track album, which they’ve promoted in Canada since March while on tour with Canadian band, Doc Walker.
Emerson Drive has racked up countless award nominations in both the U.S. country market at the (ACM’s) and (CMA’s), as well as in Canada where they have picked up multiple trophies for Group or Duo of the Year from the CCMA (Canadian Country Music Association).
