Did you know the Canadian Country Music Association Awards were this past weekend? We’ve got your recap covered.
Eli Young Band may be known for smash hits such as “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” “Crazy Girl” and “Drunk Last Night,” but before they were stars they released a gem titled “When It Rains.”
Jason Blaine seamlessly blends more contemporary sounds with traditional country elements – vocals are somewhat reminiscent of a higher pitched Charles Kelley or a less deep throated Billy Currington, with the Brad Paisley family man, good guy charisma.
One of our favorite country artists and one of our favorite rock artists getting together to perform a personal favorite of mine, Bryan Adams’ “Heaven.” It had all the makings of a disappointment. Well, it wasn’t.
Kristian Bush debut single “Trailer Hitch” is a feel-good anthem with an important message – filled with exuberant energy from the heyday’s of Sugarland.
From up-tempo to tracks to heartfelt ballads, Chad Brownlee has the conviction, vocal talent, and versatility that make the Canadian hitmaker one to absolutely get acquainted with.
Jason Isbell is an absolutely stellar Americana songwriter with the vocal chops and conviction to pull off the masterful stories he tells, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a better example than “Elephant.”
While country-rap is far from our favorite thing in music, we actually don’t mind Colt Ford. But despite the fact that he has delivered many delightful tunes, we went into this album with modest expectations. Did he live up to them?
The latest Canadian Country Spotlight, brought to you by our own Markus Meyer of Victoria, B.C., features country-rock artist Dallas Smith.
Distinctively country yet somewhat distorted; Sturgill Simpson’s “Turtles” is drug-infused, classic-country goodness.
