Canadian country star Jess Moskaluke was surprised with a Gold Single Award plaque from MDM Recordings for her single “Kiss Me Quiet” during JUNO weekend in Vancouver. “Kiss Me Quiet” is the Saskatchewan singer-songwriter’s second solo Gold track certification, with “Cheap Wine & Cigarettes” earning Platinum status in 2016. Moskaluke has also received a Gold certification for her collaboration with Paul Brandt on “I’m An Open Road,” which was certified in June of 2017.
Moskaluke spent the better part of the JUNO Awards festivities recovering from the flu, but that did not stop her from sharing the news with her fans through Instagram as soon as she could.
Congratulations to the 2014 Canadian Country Music Association Award winners, which were presented this past weekend during Canadian Country Music Week in Edmonton, AB.
During the Awards broadcast Sunday night, Dean Brody won Album of the Year for ‘Crop Circles’, while Gord Bamford won Single of the Year for ‘When Your Lips Are So Close’, in addition to picking up the Male Artist of the Year Award.
