Fall has almost arrived, and I know everybody will soon be gearing up for Thanksgiving (in Canada) and soon after Halloween!
Next up on the latest happenings in the CMC world is "The Josie Music Awards"... Pre-Party at OLE RED in Gatlinburg, and the JMA's Main Event at Dollywood Celebrity Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN on Sept 20/21st... THE EXCITEMENT IS BUILDING, as my family and I look forward to our trip to Tennessee very soon!
My latest album "The Long Road Home" has garnered a nomination for "Male Album Of The Year" at The 2019 JMA's. It means very much to me, and I couldn't be more proud of this body of work at this time in my music career. I have many people to thank who contributed to the album...
Many thanks to the following people from my team of players and production people:
Ron Nevison, Matt Thomson, Marc D. Muir, Allen Hunter, Thom Sullivan, Michelle Arthurs & Gary LaBarr. Also Big Thanks to Michael Stover at MTS Management Group/MTS Records on the Promotion/Publicity end.
I would also like to mention that my third single "Would You Stay", from the album was also awarded in the category of "Male Single Of The Year" from the 2019 ISSA Awards! It is an honour to recieve a Bronze in the "Top 3" in this category. Thank you so much to the ISSA's!
Recently we had the chance to perform and close the night after The James Barker Band at this year's "South Mountain Fair". It was a fantastic night, and so great to celebrate and see so many friends a familiar faces at the Fair! It is rumoured that Friday night, the 16th of August broke all attendance records for any past Friday night at the SM Fair! Thank you so much everyone for all of your support, and to the South Mountain Fair for having the band and I this year! (Here's a pic of the band on stage).
