2015 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards Recap

On Monday night in Markham, the brightest talent in Ontario country music gathered to celebrate the industry and the achievements of 2014.

Jason McCoy Red Carpet CMAO Awards 2015-3739With 12 awards, and as many performances, the Flato Markham Theatre certainly was the place to be. As first time attendees and first time voters, both Trish and I were ready to celebrate with all of the friends we’ve made in the industry over the last few years – and we’re both happy to report that it was as awesome as we’d hoped.

Congratulations to all of the nominees and the winners. And high fives to all of the performers, there was a whole lot of talent on display Monday night. Also, we need to send a high five to Jason McCoy who handled hosting and performing duties – and he nailed it!

Thanks to Trish we have photos of award winners, performers, nominees and other awesome talent at the 2015 CMAOs. Have a look!
