AT THE 2021 CCMA AWARDS PRESENTED BY TD

 

(November 28, 2021) – Tonight the Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) celebrated wins in 29 categories at the CCMA Music Industry Gala Dinner & Awards presented by Music Canada. This evening’s Gala kicked off the first of two awards ceremonies being held this weekend in London.

The 2021 CCMA Music Industry Gala Dinner & Awards presented by Music Canada is the first time the Canadian country music industry gathered in-person to celebrate in more than two years. Recognized as the most formal event of Country Music Week, the evening celebrated the best in the industry — from industry executives and artist-driven companies to recognized songwriters and performers. Hosted by Don Amero, JoJo Mason and Jess Moskaluke, the evening included unforgettable performances by Jade Eagleson, Genevieve Fisher, Aaron Goodvin, Corb Lund ft. Katie Rox & Brandi Sidoryk (Nice Horse), Sacha and Tim & The Glory Boys.

Taking home her first-ever CCMA Awards was Big Loud Records’ Brianne Deslippe (Industry Person of the Year presented by MNP) while Stephano Barberis collected his twelfth win in the Video Director of the Year category. The evening award ceremony also saw Ben Bradley and Matthew Atkins tie for a win in the Drummer of the Year category and Brett Kissel: Live At The Drive-In walked away with the Live Innovation Award, a new award handed out this year to celebrate a live, virtual event or concert series that strove to continue to celebrate live Canadian country music during the global pandemic. The evening was made whole with Jennifer Campbell’s contributions to country radio being recognized as she was named Country Personality(ies) of the Year for 2021.

Adding to the evening’s excitement was the announcement of Calgary as the 2022 CCMA Awards Host City. Scheduled for next fall, Country Music Week 2022 will culminate with the CCMA Awards Show, to take place at the Scotiabank Saddledome next Fall.

“We are thrilled that the Canadian Country Music Awards and Country Music Week will be returning once again to Calgary in 2022,” said Jeff Hessel, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Tourism Calgary. “Building on the success of the 2019 event, we are excited to showcase Calgary’s diverse music scene and growing reputation as the ultimate host city.”
