SaskMusic and Artists at Country Music Week 2019, Calgary AB

Country Music Week, presented by the Canadian Country Music Association, 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 (including CCMA Fan Village, a Songwriters’ Series, talent showcases, FanFest, and the Legends Show); the CCMA Awards Show, a two-hour live television special highlighting a year in country music; and an industry conference, where the Canadian country music industry honour those working behind the scenes via educational workshops and seminars, networking receptions, awards ceremonies and more. 

SaskMusic will be heading to Calgary September 5-8, 2019 to represent the Saskatchewan music industry, along with a score of talented Saskatchewan artists and industry professionals.
