In this unique show, artists play their hits then team up to present collaborative renditions of Canadian rock classics.</p> <p class="text-align-justify">Aaron Pritchett, a seasoned country star with many charting hits over the past twenty years, hosted this year’s event. Newcomer Jade Eagleson joined him for a marvelous acoustic version of The Tragically Hip’s “Wheat Kings.”</p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><img alt="Jade Eagleson" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="db5b3f2d-bd42-4ab0-bb2f-77bf59568fab" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/2.PNG" /><figcaption>Jade Eagleson</figcaption></figure><p class="text-align-justify"> </p> <p class="text-align-justify">Current charting singer Andrew Hyatt paired up with Nashville-based hit singer-songwriter Deric Rattan to cover Bryan Adams’ “Cuts Like A Knife.” </p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-center"><img alt="Andrew Hyatt &amp; Deric Rattan" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="b386aab2-5a96-425b-ac6e-b667dcdbf1cc" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/3.JPG" /><figcaption>Andrew Hyatt &amp; Deric Rattan</figcaption></figure><p class="text-align-justify"> </p> <p class="text-align-justify">Next, Canadian multi-award-winning Caroline Dawn Johnson teamed up with Tenille Townes, herself now a number one chart-topping artist and multiple winner at this year’s CCMA awards.

This year it’s on Friday, September 6 at the beautiful Jack Singer Concert Hall in downtown Calgary and will be supported for the first time by Stingray Music, as official presenter! The uniqueness of the Legends Show is that it brings together many of the biggest Canadian country stars of the past, matching them with some of the hottest current acts. This year’s event will see performances from <span><span><span>Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Alan Doyle (of Great Big Sea,) Jade Eagleson, Lindsay Ell, Tim Hicks, Andrew Hyatt, Aaron Pritchett, The Reklaws, Deric Ruttan, Tenille Townes, The Wilkinsons, and Michelle Wright.</span></span></span><br /><br /> The Legends Show is only one of several happenings where the fans and the public can join in.

Unique au monde, cet événement qui existe depuis maintenant 50 ans attire à chaque année près de 600 000 visiteurs durant les dix jours de festivités. Le festival, qui est la plus grande attraction western de l’Est du Canada attire les visiteurs par ses rodéos professionnels, ses spectacles d’envergure, son ambiance festive est un incontournable pour les amateurs de country.</p> <p>Après avoir reçu un nombre impressionnant de candidatures, les artistes finalistes ont été invités à un spectacle en soirée, le 13 septembre 2018, pour interpréter leurs chansons en direct avec des musiciens sélectionnés par les organisateurs du concours.</p> <p>Pour l’occasion, Véronique Labbé s’est vu l’honneur de décerner deux belles plaques de 2e position et deux prix d’une valeur de 500$ chaque à Sugar Crush (pour la catégorie « Country Western Traditionnel ») et à Tomy Paré (pour la catégorie « Populaire, rock &amp; folk »). Ce fut ensuite à M. Benoît Montreuil, Président de la 51e Édition du FWST à remettre les plaques aux gagnants Mack et Ro (pour la catégorie « Country Western Traditionnel ») et Allyson Pétrin (pour la catégorie « Populaire, rock &amp; folk »).</p> <h3>À propos des gagnants et gagnantes</h3> <h4>• Country Western Traditionnel</h4> <p><strong>1er prix</strong>: Mack et Ro (1000$) <a href="http://macketro.ca/" target="_blank">Mack et Ro</a> est un band composé de deux cousins. Tout a commencé par un groupe hommage à Johnny Cash (The Porters) qui a vu le jour en avril 2007. Par la suite, la passion de la musique country les a amené vers de nouveaux projets communs : 2 for the Show et Alan Jackson Experience. Aujourd’hui, ils partagent leur bagage de succès country au public avec une complicité sur scène et des harmonies vocales à couper le souffle. Leur premier succès, Romaine, a pavé la voie à un album en juin 2018.</p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img"><img alt="FWST2018-Mack et Ro" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="28a612b8-491f-4f76-8ce0-f77d4cc82668" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/FWST2018-Mack%20et%20Ro.jpg" /><figcaption>Mack et Ro</figcaption></figure><p> </p> <p><strong>2e prix</strong>: Sugar Crush (500$) La formation canadienne de trad-country <a href="https://www.facebook.com/SugarCrushband" target="_blank">Sugar Crush</a> est un groupe francophone qui tourne depuis plusieurs années avec ses musiciens en proposant un spectacle festif.

was a night of glamour as country music community dressed up in its best to celebrate those who make country music great. </span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>The night honoured both artists and industry professionals with the highlight of the evening being Terri Clark’s induction into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Her acceptance speech was truly moving. Terri spoke of her late mother and how much she had helped her in her career. She also talked about the great gift we have as artists of being able to bring people together. Terri’s speech and induction, as well as the induction of Jackie Rae Greening, were just the start of many moments this weekend that highlighted women’s empowerment in country music.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span><span><span><strong><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>Female Power</span></span></span></strong></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>Female power started the Canadian Country Music Awards off with a bang on Sunday night at FirstOntario Centre. Jess Moskaluke, Kira Isabella and Madeline Merlo paid tribute to the Queen of Canadian country music, Shania Twain, and demonstrated how the talent of females in country music is better than ever. </span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>The queen herself, Shania Twain, who was the host of the evening, then joined the talented women of today’s country on stage. Twain took home four awards including, Top Selling Album of the Year, Top Selling Canadian Album of the Year, the CCMA Generation Award and the coveted Apple Music Fan’s Choice Award. She took several moments throughout the night to celebrate the progress that women are making in country music, but she also recognized the need for more progress in the future:</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>"I'm thrilled to see women in country dominating the album of the year category," said Twain, pointing how rare it is to see this many women nominated in the category. But we can go further by recognizing a place for diversity in country music by being inclusive and by really respecting what women of country have always been able to deliver: heart, soul and a kick-ass guitar riff."</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>The female talent and focus of the night didn’t end there as the crowd of over 10,000 fans enjoyed performances from Jessica Mitchell, Lindsay Ell and Meghan Patrick. Meghan who took home the award for Female Artist of the Year said: “To all the girls: we are killing it this year”. Jess Moskaluke then picked up the award for Album of the year for Past the Past.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span><img alt="Kira Isabella, Shania Twain, Madeline Merlo &amp; Jess Moskaluke" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="3c91f2fb-a505-46bc-88e9-9c6dfe306b6b" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Kira%20Isabella%2C%20Shania%20Twain%2C%20Madeline%20Merlo%20%26%20Jess%20Moskaluke.jpg" /></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p><span class="tinytext">Kira Isabella, Shania Twain, Madeline Merlo &amp; Jess Moskaluke<br /> Photo Credits: Nicole Rayy</span></p> <p><strong><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>Future Fan Favourites</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p><span><span><span><span><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB"><span><span>Of course, fans were also lucky enough to hear from some of the best males in country music on Sunday night.
