I’m very excited to share this latest development – the Canadian Country Music Awards voters have selected me as one of the five nominees for Roots Artist of the Year! It is a dream come true, and if you’re reading this, I probably have YOU to thank in some way. Thanks so much for your love and for your support. This award means so much to me because it represents one of the only ways in which Americana/Alt Country gets recognized on the national stage in Canada. It is a very rich genre of music in this country, as evidenced not only by the other nominees (Corb Lund, Shane Chisolm, Ridley Bent, and Jimmy Rankin) but by the 100 or so other Canadians I know and love who could also be nominated in this category! For all my independent friends out there pounding the pavement in this industry, every step forward for one of us is a step forward for all of us!
