Fresh Vibe | Hot Country Canada

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.

Almanach | Patrice Michaud

Patrice Michaud à cette voix ronde et chaleureuse qui sait porter les mots avec une sensibilité rare. Il nous raconte des histoires avec sincérité. Il aborde avec solidité des thématiques telles que la soif de liberté (Éloïse), le deuil (La saison des pluies), la solitude (La terre de la couronne) interprétée avec Ariane Moffatt qui n’a plus besoin de présentation.

Our Lady Peace | Stingray PausePlay

Our Lady Peace returns after a 6-year absence with Maida behind the mixing console and keeping things old school and simple. Needless to say, the sound of OLP still survives and is stronger than ever. Their latest album, Somethingness, hits all the right feels. All the elements you might expect from these Canadian legends remain but are propelled forward with a production twist a la 2018. Our Lady Peace is polished, clean, and focused. Make sure to give their album a listen, from start to finish.
