Canadian Country Music Week Names Future Host Cities

This year’s CCMA four-day event takes place in Hamilton, Ontario Sept. 9-12, 2011. The organization’s Sept. 12 TV Award show serves as the gathering’s finale. Country Music Week is one of the largest music events in Canada each year with a combination of activities for both community and industry attendees including showcase opportunities for newcomers, educational seminars and an all day FanFest that engages artists with the local community.

On July 14, CCMA Executive Director Don Green announced the following upcoming locations for the event:

2012—Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

2013—Edmonton, Alberta

2014— Edmonton, Alberta

“Edmonton was and continues to be an amazingly supportive community for our industry conference, Country Music Week and the Canadian Country Music Awards,” said Green.  “Our two-year stay will help the Association to focus resources on exploring some new initiatives recognizing Canadian country talent locally, domestically and internationally all year round.”

Edmonton has an excellent history of hosting both Country Music Week and the Canadian Country Music Awards, bringing the event a record high in ticket sales, sponsorship, attendance and viewership of the 2010 Awards show.
