CCMA_2016awards_1200x630fin

Today, the Canadian Country Music Association revealed the nominees for the 2016 CCMA Awards, taking place in London, Ontario. 34 CCMA Award categories were revealed, with 8 of the categories being presented during the live CBC broadcast on Sunday, September 11, 2016, hosted by Jessi Cruickshank.

The nominees for the 2016 CCMA Fans’ Choice Award were revealed last night on ET Canada, featuring artists Dean Broady, Brett Kissel, Johnny Reid, Dallas Smith, and Yoan. Fans can vote beginning today, and have until 5 PM on September 11 to cast their vote.

2016 also marks the 40th anniversary of the Canadian Country Music Association bringing Country Music Week across the country. Along with the CCMA Awards, London will also host an industry conference and music festival, which includes a Songwriters’ Series, talent showcases, FanFest, and Legends Show that pays tribute to Canada’s most cherished country artists.

Country Music Week and the 2016 CCMA Awards are expected to generate an economic impact of $6-$8 million dollars for London. In 2015, Halifax, NS, exceeded economic impact estimates, generating $11.8 million in economic activity for the province, and $5.5 million in new money (GDP).

Performers for the broadcast will be announced throughout August. For more information, visit the full CCMA release.
