The 2019 CCMA Awards are here and the winners are claiming their trophies!
The star-studded red carpet has wrapped and Canada’s biggest night in country music has begun at the 2019 CCMA Awards, held at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome.
The ceremony, hosted by Dallas Smith and Billy Ray Cyrus, will see Dean Brody, the Hunter Brothers, Meghan Patrick, Tebey, Old Dominion and more all take the stage.
Some artists were already awarded at the CCMA Gala Dinner and Awards presented by SOCAN on Saturday, ahead of Sunday night’s broadcast.
Taking home their first-ever CCMA Awards were Alberta natives Lindsay Ell and Tenille Townes, who have both had a record year with number-one charting singles in Canada.
Ell took home the Interactive Artist or Group of the Year Award, while Townes was awarded with Anthem Entertainment Songwriter(s) of the Year and Video of the Year for her hit “Somebody’s Daughter”.
