There’s an irony that many of today’s top Canadian country music stars live and record in Nashville but don’t see a lot of love on the American country charts. It’s even more ironic when you consider the international success of Canadian artists in pretty well every other music genre where they’re constantly found at the top of those charts. There have been a few exceptions over the years (Shania Twain, Terry Clark, Michelle Wright and more recently High Valley) but generally, they’re not overly exposed on US country music radio.
But country music is certainly alive and well and thriving in Canada of course, with constant national touring and radio exposure happening with our top country performers as well as award recognition by the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) and Junos.
Reflecting all this is Stingray Music’s Hot Country Canada channel. It’s a 24/7 contemporary country music stream showcasing 100% Canadian country music artists. You’ll hear the likes of Canada’s biggest country stars like Dean Brody, Jess Moskaluke, Brett Kissel, Dallas Smith, Meghan Patrick, George Canyon, James Barker Band and the latest releases by many more charting up and comers. This special Vibe stream is updated weekly with the latest releases too.
