Two new Canuck tunes have made the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 chart this week. The first is by country artist Johnny Reid whom Canada imported from the land of the bagpipes. The song is “Baby I Know It” from his latest studio album Fire It Up. The song features Grande Prairie, Alberta’s Carolyn Dawn Johnson. The second new single is from the all-time best-selling Canadian artist. This is her first charting single in over 3 years. “Parler a mon pere”, the latest from Celine Dion, debuts at #53 and precedes the fall release of her next studio album. Hedley continues its reign at the top of the Canadian hits and the chart’s greatest gainer was Dean Brody’s “Bob Marley”, a country song that tips its hat to the reggae legend. It moved 15 positions up the chart from last week.
