Country Music Week began in 1977 as an annual event which heightens awareness and increases exposure for Canada’s country music artists. Today, Country Music Week is made up of three components: Country Music Week music festival, which includes a Songwriters’ Series, talent showcases and a full-day FanFest that is free and family-friendly, to name a few; the CCMA Awards Broadcast which is a 2-hour live, television special highlighting a year in country music; as well as an Industry Conference which allows the Canadian country music industry to honour those working behind the scenes as well as provides educational workshops and networking receptions.
Country Music Week 2014 will be held in Edmonton, AB from September 4-7. To see a listing of fan events click here. If you’re an artist or a member of the music industry and would like to attend the Industry Conference, find full conference information and register, click here.
Country Music Week requires countless hours of planning and preparation. We could not put on this event each year without the support of our local organizing host committees, made up of various community stakeholders in each city.
The 2013/2014 Country Music Week Host Committee includes:
- Jackie Rae Greening, Chair/Sponsorships
- Jo-Ann Yewchuk, Events
- Ingrid Roffel, Events
- Leanne Telford, Operations
- Tracy Telford, Operations
- Marisa Jodoin, Marketing
- Karlee Dominiuk, Marketing
- Chris Scheetz, Advisor
