SiriusXM & CCMA's Top of the Country - Contest Opportunity

Prizes include $25,000 and a SOCAN songwriting camp

Deadline: March 2, 2018

Sirius XM has announced the launch of SiriusXM’s Top of the Country music competition. A partnership with the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA), it will offer a national platform exclusively for emerging Canadian country artists. The cross-Canada search gives participating acts a chance to play at Canada’s most prominent country music festivals, industry mentorship programs, a SOCAN songwriting camp in Nashville, TN, and more. The grand prize brings $25,000 and entry to a SOCAN songwriting camp in Pender Island, BC.

Once participants representing Western, Central and Eastern Canada have been selected, the competition will not only offer the emerging artists big prizes but will showcase them on a national stage through a public online vote open to all Canadians.

Canadian country solo artists and groups are encouraged to register for the competition. Nine artists, with three from each of Western, Central and Eastern Canada, will be chosen by a jury of industry experts to record in-studio videos for the Canada-wide online vote taking place this spring to pick 3 finalists. The 3 finalists will have the opportunity to perform at Canada's biggest country music festivals, take part in a Mentor Session in Toronto hosted by the CCMA and SiriusXM, attend a SOCAN songwriting camp, and open for a headliner during the CCMA's Country Music Week September 6-9, 2018.
