UPDATE: Not too shabby!
Here’s the full list of CCMA Award winners. As you’ll see, my predictions were pretty good. I had most of the winners with either my first choice, or my alternate choice. It was a great show, kudos to everyone involved.
The Canadian Country Music Association Awards will broadcast Sunday night on CBC at 8pm. It’s a can’t miss show this year, jam packed with performances from your favourite Canadian country music stars, plus special international guests Blake Shelton & Brett Young.
