CMAO 2017 Awards Show and Conference Contest!

The 2017 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards are coming, and London, ON is going to do a great job hosting.

We know this because we just experienced a hell of a good time with the country music family during Canadian Country Music Week 2016… ask around and people will tell you the same thing.

Now, because we know this weekend is going to be amazing, we want to send you to experience it!

Yup, we want you to go check out the panels at the CMAO R2I (Road to Independence) TuneUp Conference and the CMAO Awards show on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11.

It’s going to be a great time. It’s going to be filled with country music’s brightest stars from Ontario. It’s going to be a weekend that you won’t soon forget. Memorable moments will happen. Selfies will be taken. Stories will be told. And you could be there.

If you haven’t been to the awards show in the past, you should know that it’s going to have some amazing musical performances… Your host, Jason McCoy, is sure to sing you a line or two, and backed by house band, The Western Swing Authority, you will see no fewer than 11 artists live on stage.

  1. I cannot in a million years tell you how much I want to be at this show. To watch the Canadian Country Artist get the awards that they so deserve is something that would be a blessing for me. I love country music it is deep in my soul. I lost my dad and he sang the old country and when I am out in the parks, festivals and concerts it makes me think of him. I feel his presence and to see the artist win the awards that brings me close to my dad and make me smile again is worth more then Gold. Thanks for this contest.

    1. Didn’t you win tickets last year to this too Anna? That would be pretty lucky if you won 2 yrs in a row. Good Luck my dear. Maybe I’ll see you there.
