CMAOntario Awards


Jun 16


National Arts Centre (Southam Hall),


2019 will mark the debut of the CMAOntario Awards in the nation’s capital.


The 7th annual celebration will bring an evening of continuous music, memorable moments and inevitable fun to the National Arts Centre (Southam Hall) in Ottawa on Sunday, June 16, 2019 starting at 7:00pm.


CCMA Award winner Jason McCoy, creator and front man of multiple CCMA and JUNO Award-winning The Road Hammers, will return as host for the 2019 CMAOntario Awards.


As part of the evening’s honours, multi-award winning country vocal group The Good Brothers will receive the 2019 Impact Award. This trio of brothers have been part of Canada’s musical soundtrack for more than five decades, highlighted by Larry’s fiery banjo breaks, Bruce’s award winning autoharp styles, Brian’s guitar finger picking and their unique sibling harmonies. Through their soulful blend of country, bluegrass, traditional roots and folk, along with their spirited live shows, they have gained a worldwide audience, captured 8 JUNO Awards and in 2004, were inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2015 the brothers were recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Toronto Musicians Association followed a year later by an induction into the North American Country Music Association International Hall of Fame. 2017 saw the release of their 16th studio album, Wide Awake Dreamin’, supported by their 39th tour on the other side of the Atlantic.


Nominations for the 2019 CMAOntario Awards will open in February 2019.


Additional details, including a full line-up of performers and award nominees, will be announced in early 2019.
