Desiree Dorion's fourth studio album, "Tough Street," is a beautiful and humble homage to her upbringing. This is her most personal and honest work yet. The album compiles "darkly beautiful and introspective songs ... [her] best recorded vocals yet," (Bruce Leperre, 730 CKDM). Her first single from the album, "Whiskey Knows," was released to country radio across Canada and reached #1 on the National Indigenous Music Countdown and landed on the Canadian Country music charts. Tough Street was nominated for five Manitoba Country Music Awards and a Canadian Folk Music Award. Desiree took home the award for Songwriter of the Year at the Manitoba Country Music Awards for co-writing "Whiskey Knows" with Chris Burke-Gaffney. "Whiskey Knows," is also a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. The follow up single, "Like a Flower," also reached the Canadian country music charts and is currently climbing the Indigenous Music Countdown.

Dorion's previous albums have garnered nominations at the 2014 JUNO Awards, 2014 WCMA Awards, 2014 and 2013 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards, 2013 Indian Summer Music Awards, the 2012 International Songwriting Competition, Best Country Album and Best Female Artist at the 2010 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, Best Country Artist at the 2010 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards, Best Country Album at the 2011 North American Indigenous Image Award, Best Country Album at the 2011 Indian Summer Music Awards, and Best Country Album and Best Female Artist at the 2011 Native American Music Awards.
