Estevan is one of four communities to compete for Dallas Smith concert.

ESTEVAN - SiriusXM Canada has announced the Top 16 towns across the country to proceed to the next stage of SiriusXM Music Town, a nationwide contest to award four lucky towns an epic music experience.

Earning one of the coveted spots is Estevan, whose passionate nominations from the local community exemplified hometown pride and a love of music.

"I live in a small city in the great Prairies. We are a blue-collar town, mostly working in the oil patch or in our coal mines. Sadly, much has been said about shuttering our power plants, and added to the reality of a precarious oil patch future. All of this reality has hit us hard, after years of producing energy for our home province and our surrounding neighbours, and the new reality is threatening to take away our present and that of our future of our children. This is not easy to write, nor is the future which is ominously waiting for us. We would love to have you come to our city and bring us a modicum of joy, even though it may be a one-time event, the brave men and women and children of Estevan who face such an uncertain future could really use a shot of Canadian talent. I know our town, and I know that the generosity of your offer would make us rise up and make all of us so very grateful. We have never hidden from the reality of what the next years will bring," reads one of the nominations.

After receiving enthusiastic submissions from over 400 unique communities across the country, SiriusXM Canada narrowed down the entries to 16 finalist communities, across four different regions – Eastern Canada, Quebec, Ontario and Western Canada – based on heartfelt stories describing what makes each community special.

Estevan will be competing against Lloydminster, Nanaimo and Sylvan Lake in the Western region to win an epic concert experience from Dallas Smith.

Starting June 22, Canadians can vote and rally behind Estevan to propel them to the top and win the epic concert experience. Voting is now open for the top 16 within the regions (Ontario, East, Quebec, West) at

Multiple JUNO and CCMA Award-winner, Smith is the only Canadian country artist with 12 No 1 singles. The reigning three-times CCMA Entertainer of the Year, he has 18 Canadian Gold-certified singles, four Gold-certified albums and seven Platinum-certified singles.

Music fans across Canada are invited to cast their vote for their top town in each region from June 22-July 11. Residents of the final 16 can increase the odds of their town winning by taking to social media using #SXMMusicTown to encourage additional votes and rally behind their community.

On July 14, one town in each region will be declared a SiriusXM Music Town based on nomination stories and the total number of votes and rally points earned during the voting period.
