I am so fortunate to be able to work with some exceedingly talented Canadian musicians and singer-songwriters, including Ann Vriend, Kelli Trottier, Sultans of String, Shari Ulrich, Jennifer Gasoi, and the fabulous Kirsten Jones!
Kirsten recently shared this news with her friends and fans in a newsletter and I am so proud of her that I would like to share it with you too! Congratulations Kirsten!!
I couldn’t be happier to share this great news with you – I just received a nomination for Roots Artist of the Year from the Canadian Country Music Awards.
There is no way this could have happened without YOU. Some of you have helped in huge ways (years of friendship and support) and others in small ways (simply joining this mailing list). But all of these actions – big and small – have kept me going on a daily basis and have paved the road to this award nomination.
I am most excited about this because it is one of the only national platforms for Americana/Alt Country artists in Canada. Most are straight folk or country awards – and it’s a little bit of a “square peg in a round hole” situation for artists like myself. So this is a real honour and a dream come true.
Thank you so much for all your help, support, love, purchases, and good vibes. You can check out all the other CCMA nominees and other details about the upcoming awards at www.ccma.org.
My sincerest thanks,
