It's getting ever closer to September 9, when at 8pm (ET) CBC will broadcast the biggest night in Canadian country music. The Canadian Country Music Association Awards are heading to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, for what's sure to be one of the biggest nights the city's ever seen.
Joining those big names on the CCMA Awards performers line-up are:
Blaine - from Pembroke, Ontario - is nominated for Male Artist of the Year, Single of the Year and Songwriter of the Year for They Don't Make Em' Like That Anymore which he wrote with fellow CCMA nominee Deric Ruttan. Check out the video below:
They released their seventh record in August of last year, and it's nominated for Album of the Year. Doc Walker are also up for Group or Duo of the year, and will battle it out with a number of their fellow performers...
Along with Doc Walker, Emerson Drive are no stranger to the CCMA Award stage. They've won six awards, and will once again battle it out this year for Group or Duo of the year.
One of the nominees for the Rising Star award, Kira Isabella is just nineteen years old. From Canada's capital, she'll let the nation hear what she has to offer on September 9.
Like last year's Rising Star award winner Chad Brownlee, Dallas Smith hails from BC. Unlike Brownlee, Smith wasn't a big league hockey prospect, but he was in alt-rock band Default before embarking on his solo career.
Whitby, Ontario's The Stellas will take to the stage to perform in Saskatoon, but they'll also be hoping to take to the stage to accept the award for Best Video. The House, below, is nominated.
