Sometimes things just happen out right. That’s pretty much how Aaron Pritchett likes to describe the Score.

His 2016 album titled to honour his 20th year in the country music business not only saw the singer back in the top 10 for the first time in seven years, but it set up shop there as singles such as Dirt Road in Em, Out of the Blue and When a Momma’s Boy Meets a Daddy’s Girl just kept on charting. He’s following up that Juno-nominee for Country Album of the Year with the six song Out on the Town EP and its leadoff single Better When I Do.

And he’s going out on the road headlining a tour with special guests Kira Isabella and David James.

“This time it’s my name with my album and I think that makes it my first headlining tour in 25-plus years, kinda wild,” said Pritchett. “There are many different reasons for that, including the ebb and flow of a career, good opening spots and a slow period from 2009 to 2014. I honestly wasn’t sure that was going to turn around the way it did with all the singles doing so well, albums selling well and selling out shows.”

Pritchett is the first to admit that he dreamed of headlining from his very first gig. Who doesn’t? That he’s been steadily performing and recording for a quarter of a century is a serious achievement in itself. Canadian country musicians have to compete against American megastars for radio play and recognition and, frankly, it’s not a win.

“To make it here at any level, you really have to be tenacious and keep pushing constantly,” he said. “I don’t know how to do anything else, or want to do anything else so I just kept constantly reassessing my career. Even when I wasn’t getting on the radio or selling albums, I was playing to big crowds so I kept doing it.”

He credits a combination of friends, family and band support for keeping him moving forward. And switching to producer Scott Cooke, who has helmed hits for everyone from Jake Owen to Chase Rice put him onto what he calls his “new sound” and it’s clearly working.

But how does Pritchett know when he has one of those songs that just suits his style like
