Recap of the 2019 Juno Awards
Country music had such an incredible presence at the 2019 Juno Awards this weekend in London, On. It all started Friday night as The Reklaws, The Washboard Union and Jess Moskaluke played the Junos Side Stage to a sold-out crowd.
The Washboard Union Win Breakthrough Group of the Year at the 2019 Juno Awards
Congrats to our friends David Roberts, Aaron Grain & Chris Duncombe of The Washboard Union for picking up the award for Breakthrough Group of the Year this weekend. This is the first time in Junos history that a country band has won this award! It was a year ago that they hit the road with Old Dominion leading up to the release of their first full-length album What We’re Made Of.
Brett Kissel’s ‘We Were That Song’ Wins Country Album of the Year
Congrats to Brett Kissel who won Country Album of the Year’ for his album We Were That Song. I loved his acceptance speech, where he laughed about how he was able to get Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Charlie Pride on the same album! Here’s my chat with Brett Kissel on the red carpet as he reflects on the last year and gives kudos to The Washboard Union for their win.
