Canadian-born and Nashville-based recording artist Tenille Townes received the award for Country Album of the Year for her debut album, The Lemonade Stand, at the 50th Annual Juno Awards on Sunday, June 6.
The critically acclaimed project was produced by Jay Joyce and released last June via Columbia Nashville in partnership with RCA Records. Townes first effort included “Jersey On The Wall (I’m Just Asking)” and “Somebody’s Daughter,” which both reached No. 1 on the Mediabase Canada chart, making her the first female in Mediabase Canada history to achieve that feat.
“It feels surreal and so exciting to know that people have heard this collection of music and wrapped their arms around it,” shared Townes. “Truly was a dream to make this record and it’s such an honor to get to celebrate this moment with the Canadian music community at the Junos tonight!”
The MusicRow 2020 Next Big Thing Artist, and MusicRow‘s first ever Robert K. Oermann Discovery Artist winner, has had an impressive year following The Lemonade Stand‘s release, including being named New Female Artist of the Year at the 55th ACM Awards and winning three awards at the 2020 Canadian Country Music Awards, making her an eight-time overall winner at the CCMA’s. Townes has also raised over $2 million for charity through her annual Big Hearts For Big Kids fundraiser.
