Tickets Now On Sale for the Country Music Week CCMA Discovery Showcase
CCMA Discovery Showcase
Presented Sakamoto Entertainment
The CCMA Discovery Program is a national initiative, developed to support Canadian country music artists endeavoring to reach their full potential in the music industry. Artists from across the country applied, and six finalists were chosen by a jury of music industry professionals. These finalists received unparalleled educational, mentorship, networking and exposure opportunities unlike any other program offered in the country genre.
The six 2015 CCMA Discovery Program finalists will come together one last time at the CCMA Discovery Showcase during Country Music Week in Halifax. Each will perform separately, and vie for the attention of a secret panel of judges who are onsite to decide this year’s CCMA Discovery Award winner. This showcase is a not-to-be-missed event for anyone looking to discover the “next big thing” in country music. The six CCMA Discovery Program finalists are future stars of the genre.

Meaghan Blanchard (Hunter River, PEI)
