The Canadian Country Music Association Awards (known to you and me as the CCMA Awards) takes place Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019. All the nation’s favourite country music stars will descend upon Calgary, Alberta, and vie for the coveted trophies. As anticipation built for the momentous event, ET Canada wanted to know which of the genre’s stars over the years is the greatest.
The answer: Blake Shelton.
In the final it was man versus woman. American versus Canadian. Shania versus Blake. Sixty-two had fallen (to be clear, they’re still alive; they just didn’t survive this particular tournament). Only two stood. The winner — YOUR winner, and decisively so — was Shelton, who will be returning to your living rooms as part of the new season of “The Voice”.
Congrats to Blake! (And commiserations to Shania — you did Canada proud!)
