Post Awards


Country Music Week began in 1977 as an annual event created to heighten awareness and increase exposure for Canada’s country music artists. Today, Country Music Week is made up of three components:a music festival, which includes a Songwriters’ Series, talent showcases, a full-day FanFest, a Legends Show that pays tribute to Canada's most cherished country artists and a cabaret party where country fans can let loose; the CCMA Awards Show, which is a two-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 via educational workshops and seminars, networking receptions, awards ceremonies and more.  

PotashCorp Country Music Week 2017 will be held in Saskatoon, SK from September 7 – 10. 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 registration details here.

PotashCorp Country Music Week entails countless hours of planning and preparation. The CCMA could not execute this major event year after year without the support and expertise of local organizing host committees, made up of community stakeholders. The core 2017 Saskatoon Host Committee includes:

Dawn Woroniuk, Chair
Diane Boyko, Hosting/Venues
Gerard Cullen, Hosting
Trish Cheveldayoff, Sponsorship
Kaelen Klypak, Social Media and Logistics
Shawna Nelson, Volunteers
Mitch Riabko, Transportation

Sponsors of PotashCorp Country Music Week and the 2017 CCMA Awards Show include FACTOR, Canada’s Private Radio Broadcasters and the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage’s “Canada Music Fund”, Radio Starmaker Fund, the Province of Saskatchewan, the City of Saskatoon and Tourism Saskatoon.
