“I released this album back in March and it’s been an incredible journey so far,” said Prevost, who will be a new father come November.
“I got married last June, and that’s when we were recording this album as well as touring and it was just a crazy time of life, it came together and I’m really looking forward to September.”
Prevost is no stranger to success.
Earlier this year he received awards for ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and “Male Vocalist of the Year’ at the Saskatchewan Country Music Association awards, making it his sixth year running capturing both titles
On top of this, he took home the 2014 SCMA Achievement Award.
