And the winners are…

A chance to celebrate Canadian Country, at the Annual Canadian Country Music Awards last night in Calgary. This country is FULL of great talent, it’s got to be one of my favorite awards shows! Dallas Smith (we also picked up some BIG awards; Entertainer of the Year & Male Vocalist of the Year) and Billy Ray Cyrus shared hosting duties. I have to say, from what I saw, Billy Ray did well…I don’t know if I expected that. Paul Brandt was honored with a humanitarian, and seeing 90’s star Charlie Major being inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame by last year’s recipient Terri Clark was wonderful. His speech was as humble and down to earth as he seems to be. Some of my favorites didn’t win (namely Dean Brody), but a lot of the ‘newcomers’ had the chance to shine; notably Tenille Townes, and The Reklaws. Seeing the Entertainment of the Year award make a come back after get this…a 30 year hiatus, well, I don’t know why it stayed away so long!  Check out a full list list of winners here.
