April 8, 2014

I am pleased to announce the nominees for the 2014 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards.

We are immensely proud of Ontario’s vibrant Country Music  scene  and we believe the nominees for this year’s awards justify our pride.

We are thrilled to welcome one of the finest,  Jason McCoy, as our host for the 2nd Annual Awards Show which will once again take place at the Flato Markham Theatre.  Monday, May 26th is the date and you can purchase your tickets at www.ticketbreak.com.

Jason McCoy wanted to be with us today at our press conference, but Nashville called – and so he  sent a message: “It’s an honour to not only be nominated for a CMAO Award, but to be hosting Ontario Country Music’s biggest night  as well.  We’ve got some of the best artists in the world, and it’s going to be a great night to celebrate their talents.”

We are most grateful for support from all our terrific sponsors this year, but we must single out our title sponsor,  Slaight Music,  for once again stepping up to the plate and going above and beyond. We thank Gary Slaight, Derrick Ross and the entire Slaight Music team.   Derrick Ross comments,” It’s another exciting year for Ontario Country Artists and Slaight Music is pleased to partner once again with the CMAO in celebrating their success’.  I know it’s going to another evening of great musical performances.”

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to order your tickets now for the upcoming awards show  –  remember:  Markham Flato Theatre, Monday, May 26th.  Doors will open at 6:30PM and the show begins at 7:30PM.  Tickets available through  www.ticketbreak.com are $55 plus HST and service charge.  The artists confirmed, to date: Autumn Hill, Jason Blaine, Marshall Dane, The Good Family Band, Beverley Mahood, Jason McCoy, Derric Ruttan, Tebey and The Western Swing Authority.  This line up absolutely guarantees a fabulous night of music!

We are also presenting the Impact Award this year to one of the most important singer/songwriters in the history of Canada –the one and only Gordon Lightfoot!
