Congrats to the Contemporary Roots Nominees at Canada’s 2019 Juno Awards
The 2019 Juno Awards were live from Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario on March 17th, 2019. For those who aren’t familiar, it’s the biggest night in Canadian music! I’ll recap the 2019 Juno Awards this Sunday featuring conversations with some of our North Americana nominees.
Donovan Woods Wins Contemporary Roots Album of the Year
Let’s start with our man Donovan Woods – he’s written many songs that you’re hearing from other artists and he’s up for both Songwriter of the Year and Contemporary Roots Album of the Year for his albumBoth Ways.
Good news, there was more where that came from! He just shared his new song ‘Go To Her,’ recorded at the same time as “Both Ways,” but cut from the final tracklist.
Megan Nash Reflects on Seeker
Saskatchewan’s Megan Nash was nominated for her album ‘Seeker’ in the Contemporary Roots category at this year’s awards. We caught up ahead of the gala where the award would be handed out and although she didn’t win the category, she reflects on the timing of the nomination and why it meant so much to her family:
Ewan Currie of The Sheepdogs Prepares for Solo Release
The Sheepdogs also got a few nods including ‘Group of the Year.’ I caught up with frontman Ewan Currie at the Junos on the topic if his brand new song, ‘I’d Like to Live in California,’ which you’ll also hear as part of this weekend’s playlist. You’ll hear him talk more about his new project Out of My Mind in this episode.
Congratulations to all the nominees in the Contemporary Roots Album category!
