The JUNO Awards winners in all 42 categories were announced in a virtual event held June 29. Congratulations to The Dead South, winners for Traditional Roots Album of the Year for Sugar & Joy, and to nominees Hunter Brothers for Breakthrough Group of the Year and Country Album of the Year; Foxwarren for Alternative Album of the Year; and Terri Fidelak and Carey Shaw for Album Artwork of the Year (Belle Plaine - "Malice, Mercy, Grief and Wrath").

The show was broadcast on the free CBC Gem streaming service, CBC Music's Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter pages, and at CBCMusic.ca/junos. The show maintained a lineup of guest presenters and special performances, but did not include acceptance speeches.

Due to the escalation of the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on communities across the country and around the world, the difficult decision was made to cancel the 49th annual JUNO Awards that were set to take place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in March 2020.
