Dallas Smith headlines country night at 102nd Telkwa BBQ

One More Girl to open for former Default lead singer

The musical lineup for the 102nd Annual Telkwa BBQ is smoking hot.

Last week, the Kinsmen announced Loverboy would headline the rock night, along with opening band Kenny Shields and Streetheart.

Today, the Bulkley Valley service organization made it official: Dallas Smith is headlining the country night, with opening act One More Girl.

“It’s going to be a great weekend,” said Kinsmen treasurer Mike Henfrey. “We’re really lucky to have him. He’s an up-and-coming artist and he’s quite the performer.”

A B.C. boy, Smith spent years at the front of another band, Default, selling more than one million records before turning to country music.

In 2012, he released his Canadian country debut, Jumped Right In, which earned him five 2013 Canadian Country Music Association award nominations.

Smith just finished touring with Florida Georgia Line.

One More Girl is made up of West Coast sisters Britt and Carly McKillip.

Carly, interestingly enough, is quite familiar with the Bulkley Valley as she played the starring role in CTV’s short-lived 2006 series Alice, I Think, based on Smithers’ author Susan Juby’s book of the same name.

One More Girl’s single Drunk Heart is currently receiving radio play and they will be releasing a new album later this year.

Tickets for both nights go on sale June 1 at Bulkley Valley Insurance Services locations in Smithers and Houston, Bulkley Valley Credit Union locations, Total Floors and Midway Service.

General admission tickets for each night are $35, preferred seating is $45.

The Telkwa Barbecue Country Night is sponsored by Hawkair, Glacier Electric, Coast Mountain GM and All-West Glass.

The Kinsmen are still looking at hiring more local acts for the event. Go to the Telkwa BBQ Facebook page for more information.
