The Canadian Country Music Awards might be the best event you haven’t been to yet!
Halifax hosted the 2015 Canadian Country Music Awards and it was pretty awesome. The fan experience might be the best you will ever see during an awards weekend. Brett Kissel, Dean Brody, Dallas Smith, Jess Moskaluke, the Mayor of Canadian Country Music Gord Bamford, and about 130 other artists were there. There for a good time!
The parties started mid-week with line dancing in the streets of Halifax and carried through until 4 am Sunday morning. Fans who wanted to relax a bit were given the opportunity to get up close and personal during the songwriters series, and for those looking to let loose, there were plenty of late night events with your favorite artists, including a Kitchen party featuring Tim Hicks and Chad Brownlee.
It was a pretty spectacular event, and here even more of a rundown, including interviews with Dallas Smith, Jess Moskaluke and more:
