The six 2017 CCMA Discovery Program finalists come together one last time, as each performs separately and vies for the attention of a secret panel of judges who are onsite to decide this year’s CCMA Discovery Award winner (presented at Saturday’s private industry event, the CCMA Gala Dinner & Awards). The finalists, who were selected through a rigorous, nationwide jury selection process, first met at their CCMA Music Industry Discovery Week. During this week, they learned, in-depth, about the music business and artist development through industry-led information sessions and seminars, performance and vocal coaching, styling, media training, etc. Their showcase during PotashCorp Country Music Week is the culmination of their efforts.
