An award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist and former NHL draft pick, Canadian country music artist Chad Brownlee is a man of many talents. In only a few short years since the release of his 2010 debut album, the country singer has had seven Top 10 hits on Canadian country radio, including the singles "Crash," "Smoke In The Rain," "Listen," and "Day After You," (a single which broke both the Top 10 on CMT's Chevy Cross Canada Countdown and peaked at #9 on the BDS Canadian country radio chart). Brownlee is currently nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the 2013 CCMA Awards, where he previously won the Rising Star Award (2011) and was the winner of the CCMA New Artist Showcase (2010). He has also earned a 2013 JUNO Award nomination for Country Album of the Year and has taken home a total of 11 British Columbia Music Association (BCCMA) Awards since the start of his country music career.
CCMA Award-winning singer-songwriter Deric Ruttan is as well known for his radio hits ("Main Street, 1979," "That's How I Wanna Go Out" and 2010's most-played Canadian country song of the year, "Up All Night"), as he is for the songs he's penned for other artists ("What Was I Thinkin'" for Dierks Bentley, "Hell On The Heart" for Eric Church, among others). Country music superstar and The Voice host Blake Shelton's newest single, "Mine Would Be You," is a Deric Ruttan co-write, and the song is currently rocketing up the country charts in the USA and Canada. In addition to having over three-dozen of his songs recorded by other country artists in the USA and Canada, the Bracebridge, ON, native (whose debut single "When You Come Around" found itself on the 'Top 10 Played Songs of the Decade' list at Canadian country radio 2000 - 2009), is known for his own energetic live shows and his ability to connect with his audience. His 2010 release, Sunshine, garnered him a JUNO Award nomination for Country Album of the Year and his follow-up, Up All Night - Deric Ruttan Live, won him a 2013 Country Music Association of Ontario Award. He is currently nominated for three 2013 CCMA Awards, including Single of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Video Director of the Year. Ruttan just released his latest single, "Take The Week Off," from his forthcoming album, which will be released in October.
The year 2005 saw Pembroke, ON, native Jason Blaine unleash his debut album, While We Were Waiting, which included the Top 25 singles, "Heartache Like Mine," "While We Were Waiting" and "What I Can't Forget." His follow-up album, Make My Move, arrived in 2008 and hit the Top 5 on the Canadian country album chart, with the Top 10 single ("Rock In My Boot") and Top 5 ("Flirtin' With Me"). Blaine's 2011 release, Life So Far, delivered three Top 10 singles turning 2012 into a banner year. His single, "They Don't Make Em' Like That Anymore," earned him four CCMA Award nominations and a win for Single of the Year, while the accompanying video hit #1 on CMT Canada. Subsequently, "Cool" went on to become the Most Played Canadian country songs of 2012 according to Nielsen BDS and has earned Jason a 2013 nomination for CCMA Songwriter of the Year. Last month, he released his fifth studio album, Everything I Love, featuring the first single, "Rock It Country Girl." Since his 2005 debut, Blaine has achieved 15 Top 15 singles at Canadian country radio.
