Songwriter and two-time ACM winner Tenille Townes had her hands full at the 2022 Canadian Country Music Association Awards, taking home five trophies.
Townes, who co-hosted the awards alongside Blanco Brown, won Entertainer of the Year, maintained her reign as Female Artist of the Year, and landed Single of the Year for “Girl Who Didn’t Care,” as well as Songwriter of the Year for the same track, along with co-writers Steph Jones and David Pramik.
The artist also snagged another Ford F-150 Album of the Year award for her project Masquerades, which she dropped earlier this year via Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville in partnership with RCA Records. The EP includes features from multi-genre standout Breland and hit singer-songwriter Wrabel, who accompanies Townes on the single “When You Need It.”
During the award show, Townes made the debut television performance of her newly released song “The Last Time,” which talks about the universal nostalgia felt after the realization that a life occurrence has happened for the last time.
This year, Dallas Smith, The Reklaws and Mitch Jay all walked away with two wins at the CCMA Awards. Smith held on to the title of Male Artist of the Year and was named Amazon Music and Alexa Fans’ Choice. The Relaws took home Group or Duo of the year yet again as well as Top Selling Canadian Single of the Year for “What the Truck,” alongside Sacha. Jay was proclaimed Specialty Instrument Player of the Year and Steel Guitar Player of the Year.
