"I just couldn't believe it!" Maguire said. "When you're in that situation thank you just doesn't seem like enough. I couldn't have done it without the people who are behind me all the way."

Many of the artists agree this weekend was all about the Saskatchewan country music family coming together and celebrating. 

Maguire said its future is secure, 

"It's just going to climb from now on. Country music is alive and well and I can't wait to see what we do next year. Saskatchewan audiences are in for a treat."
