The Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) announced this morning that Dallas Smith, James Barker Band and international guest Blake Shelton will all take to the stage to perform at the 2017 CCMA Awards Show. Taking place at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Sunday, September 10, the show will broadcast at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT) that night on CBC. Already announced to perform are Dean Brody, Brett Kissel and Jess Moskaluke.
JUNO Award winning, platinum-selling Country star and multiple 2017 CCMA Award nominee Dallas Smith “has blazed a path across genres in Canadian music” (CBC Music) for nearly two decades. Flourishing on the edge of global superstardom, Smith celebrated his third career #1 and second consecutive chart topper at Country radio this year. Appealing to audiences far beyond the boundaries with a stadium sized voice, Smith not only claimed his third #1 single at Country radio in Canada, but became the first Canadian male Country artist in the BDS era (post 1995), to have three #1 songs and only Canadian male Country artist to have two consecutive #1 singles. Smith is also the first Canadian Country artist to have back to back #1 singles since Shania Twain in 1998.
The 2017 CCMA Awards Show will see eight CCMA Awards presented, will highlight a number of special performances and will include appearances by a collection of Canadian personalities and country music acts. Additional CCMA Award Show performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
