Country comes home as Calgary set to host the 2019 Canadian Country Music Awards in September

It really is like a homecoming.

Country Music Week and the Canadian Country Music Awards are returning to the city that’s become synonymous with the music.

The events will be back in Calgary this September, with three days of concerts and parties around the city culminating in the awards show at the Saddledome on Sept. 8 that will be televised live on Global.

“We can’t think of a better way to show Calgarians how excited we are to return to their amazing city than to bring them the best that Canadian country music has to offer,” said Tracy Martin, CCMA president. “The show that we are putting together is going to create an unforgettable night and celebrate what has been a landmark year for country music in Canada.”

Already confirmed to be in attendance at the Dome is such an amazing mix of stars — many with local ties — as Paul Brandt, Lindsay Ell, Dallas Smith, Old Dominion, Meghan Patrick, James Barker Band, Dean Brody, High Valley, Brett Kissel, The Reklaws, Tim Hicks, The Washboard Union, Chad Brownlee, Terri Clark, Aaron Goodvin, Jess Moskaluke and Gord Bamford.

More acts and artists including a full list of performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

Tickets for the 2019 CCMA Awards go on sale this Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m.
from Ticketmaster.ca. Single tickets and packages are available for purchase — including special VIP experiences — with $1 of each sale going to MusiCounts.
