2014 CCMA’s Report

Bamford, Moskaluke named top artists
The show was hosted by Rick Mercer and Jann Arden. Arden said her goal was to hug every male star. "I think according to rodeo rules I would have to hold on for at least eight seconds." Mercer noted: "I always love coming to Alberta because I get to see all the people I grew up with in Newfoundland."
The Edmonton Sun wrote: We have to get this out of the way: What the heck was Jann Arden doing hosting the Canadian Country Music Awards? She ain’t country. 
Did they pick her up just because she happened to be in Edmonton playing the Jubilee Auditorium Monday night? Could be. She didn’t talk about it much at her concert besides making one crack, “At least I’m not being hoisted to the ceiling.” 

But hey, a gig’s a gig – much like the CCMA co-host Rick Mercer was enlisted to help Jann out with selling merch in the lobby before the show, and with security to keep the unruly crowd of 2,300 from storming the stage. “They don’t pay him much,” Jann explained...



Brett Kissel was the most nominated musician, but for the second year in a row, Gord Bamford was the big winner at the Canadian Country Music Association's awards show Sunday night in Edmonton.
"I'm not counting, but I think after tonight it's 19 (awards)," Bamford said backstage.
"I didn't expect this," Bamford said with his papa-bear voice while picking up his award for Single of the Year, for When Your Lips Are So Close. "As an artist, you've gotta be creative enough to write stuff that isn't just for yourself, but competes in the marketplace."
The 38-year-old also took home male artist of the year, beating out Kissel, among others. "I grew up in Lacombe, just down the road," he noted, thanking his wife, his label and country radio. "I was very shocked tonight. I'm just trying to stay right in the middle of the pack," he added. Bamford, who is from Lacombe, Alberta, now has 19 CCMA awards to his name, and has just signed his first American record deal with Sony in Nashville.

Female Artist for 2014 is Saskatchewan's Jess Moskaluke, one of only two female artists who took home a prize at the main ceremony on Sunday. Moskaluke is the first female singer with a single, Cheap Wine and Cigarettes, to go gold - 40,000 in sales - since Shania Twain's era. "It does not feel real, I am definitely in shock," she said. Asked where she'll keep her award, she laughed: "I'll probably just duct tape it to my body."

Windsor Star.com REGINA — Jess Moskaluke is still in shock.
A day after being named female artist of the year at the Canadian Country Music Association
Awards in Edmonton on Sunday, Moskaluke admitted the success still hasn’t sunk in - “Yup. I’m literally in shock and I’m not using literally like a teenaged girl,” Moskaluke said in a telephone interview from Edmonton on Monday morning. “I got up and accepted the award, got offstage and broke down. I was just vibrating. I’m sure I was exhibiting all the signs of shock from like a car crash victim. “It was ridiculous.”

Moskaluke, a 24-year-old from Langenburg, was considered a dark horse heading into Sunday’s awards show. Other nominees in the category included veteran star Terri Clark along with Kira Isabella, MacKenzie Porter and Lindi Ortega.
Clark was the clear favourite, having been nominated for the award 18 times in her career with four victories to her credit.

Given the quality of the nominees, Moskaluke knew it would be difficult to win the category.
I just respect those women and love what they do. Both before and after the awards I got to chat with every single one of them and they’re beautiful women both inside and out,” said Moskaluke. “They’re so talented and hard working ... Each and every one of them deserved the award as much as I did.” Read More

Small Town Pistols from Trenton, Ont. won Group or Duo of the Year. "I think this kid's going to pop out," said a seven-months pregnant Amanda Wilkinson to her brother, Tyler Wilkinson.
"We had a lot of people who told us not to do this," said Tyler Wilkinson backstage. "We had a lot of heart in this, a lot of determination. We're two poor kids from Trenton, Ont., and we just wanted to sing."

Album of the Year went to Nova Scotia-based B.C.'s Dean Brody for the Juno-winning CROP CIRCLES - his third time winning the CCMA recording prize. "We took some risks on this record I maybe wouldn't have on the first.
It was an exciting night for Brody winning with the same album that snagged a Juno back in March 2014. He accepted the CCMA wearing his father’s dusty cowboy hat. Brody has had a banner 2014, with his sold-out Crop Circles and Tractor Beams arena tour, scoring his 14th top 10 single with “Another Man’s Gold” and becoming the first male Canadian to receive two #1 country singles. This is the third time Brody has won Album of the Year, following wins in 2011 and 2012 for Trail in Life and Dirt, respectively. Brody said being back in Edmonton, where he once attended college and worked part-time at an area Walmart, reminded him of how differently his life could have turned out if he had never taken a chance and sent some of his first songs off to record labels.

Fans' choice was again Johnny Reid, who is on tour in Europe. He also had the biggest-selling album in Canadian country music with his A Christmas Gift to You.

CMT Video of the Year went to Brett Kissel for “3-2-1”. "I've dreamt of my day all my life," yelled the singer, who grew up in St. Paul, Alta.

The hardware for The Rising Star Award went to Tim Hicks, a 35-year-old country rocker from St. Catharines, Ont., who sported a ball cap instead of a Stetson. He has amassed four Top 10 singles, two Juno nominations, three GOLD certified singles and has an upcoming Fall tour with country star Dierks Bentley – but Hicks said his success has been a long time coming.
He remembered one job he took before he made it big, singing on a moving double-decker bus. He turned green and his audience told him it was OK for him to sit down and stop playing. “It took me 20 years to be a rising star but I don’t regret any of those gigs,” he said. “I can’t wait to go back home and share this with my friends and family and just continue this wild ride.”

Their sound is commonly described as a mixture of The Dixie Chicks go Lumineering with a Mumford & Sons-ian alt-country, roots-inspired approach filled with soaring vocals, sweet harmonies and sultry string.
Released on February 11, 2014, their self-titled debut EP hit #2 on the iTunes country charts on the day of release. Praised by RocketHub as "crowdfunding pioneers in the world of country music in Canada", with a strong social media play The Lovelocks were able to raise $30,000 CDN to record their debut EP.
Ali Raney and Zoe Neuman of The Lovelocks were back in Edmonton for their second CCMAs in a row, this year to accept the 2014 Discovery Award. “Edmonton loves our country music so we’re so happy to be here amongst country music fans,” they told CBC News. That’s exactly what Zoe Neuman and Ali Raney are doing with “The Lovelocks”, a country duo formed at the end of 2011. Read more CMT ca/discovery-program

Country music fans huddled in the rain along the green carpet outside Rexall Place in the hopes of snapping a selfie with their favourite stars before the Canadian Country Music Association Awards gala Sunday.
Michelle Wright poses for a fan selfie
The train of my dress is soaking wet! But that’s OK! You can’t see that part!” said Ottawa’s Kira Isabella, examining her sparkling floor-length black gown for damage. Isabella won the CCMA award for female artist of the year in 2013 and is among the 2014 nominees.
The green carpet was a flurry of black lace, gold jewelry, sequins, crinoline and leather, with a hint of camouflage thanks to Paul Brandt’s slim leg trousers. Alberta’s Brett Kissel smooth-talked his way along the carpet in a gold-threaded black jacket, while B.C’s Dean Brody looked rugged in a heavier grey tweed coat.

Beverley Mahood – The 39-year old Belfast born artist is arguably one of the prettiest women of country on the Canadian circuit and always cuts a beautiful figure on the carpet runways. The CCMA presenter donned an open shouldered strapped dark blue pleated dress with gold fastening details across the high waistband. A striking gold and silver jewelled fringe-type tiered necklace, flowing locks and a nude lippie completed her gorgeous CCMA 2014 look.

Jess Moskaluke – The nominated CCMA Female Artist and performer wore an above the knee flattering Poly/Spandex Blend sequined party dress by BB Dakota which features a round neckline and back hidden zip closure. Bright purple open-toe pumps, bright lips and cascading red curls completed her ravishing look. Later for her performance she wore her hair into a tidy bun.
“I feel wonderful, I feel waaaay too hot right now,” said female artist of the year nominee Jess Moskaluke of Saskatchewan, wearing a sequinned dress and hot pink, open-toed stilettos. “I grew up listening to people like Terri Clark. It’s so weird being in the same category as any of those artists.”

Kira Isabella – Last years CCMA Female Artist and 2014 nominee looked elegant in a floor length black low cut evening gown which features a scoop neckline with spaghetti straps and a mid cut straight across back. Her lovely make-up and hair where the work of Toronto makeup artist Justine Sly

Leah Daniels -  The Interactive Artist Of The Year nominee wore a Laundry by Shelli Segal embroidered print pencil skirt combined with a black top and studded heels to create the reflection of the “LA Girl”– feminine and contemporary with a fun and flirty attitude!

Lindsey Ell – There to co-present with Sam Hunt and perform with Paul Brandt and MacKenzie Porter she was seen chatting with CMT host and lingerie and bikini model Ashley Diana Morris on the green carpet. Lindsey looked great in a black bodycon fitting dress with leather inserts and shoulder pads. Lovely straight bangs, silver bomber drop Earrings gold rings, bracelet and an arm cuff completed the 25-year old “Shut Me Up” singer songwriter/ guitarist look – Image

MacKenzie Porter -  The 2014 CCMA Female nominee singer/actress/songwriter rocked tangerine dream looking vibrant and glam in a halter neck flared Greta Constantine dress worn with Thomas Sabo earrings and ring and a Whitney Eve bracelet and was styled by Aamarsana Gendunova (Fashion stylist/ Creative Director)
Beautiful cascading curls and soft make up finished off a winning look - “I always wear black, so I said (to my stylist), ‘Anything but black’!” gushed MacKenzie of Medicine Hat. Orange has been striking the cover of many fashion magazines and GC never disappoints when it comes to staying bold - Instagram Watch her video >> "Misfit Parade"

Michelle Wright –  The 53-year old "Love Me Anyway" Canada Day born Canadian Country queen opted for her familiar black a colour which certainly suits her. She rocked class, elegance and sophistication in a flowing evening beaded gown with illusion and lace back designs, and ravishing embellishments on the ¾ length sleeve. It recalled Cassadee Pope's entrance at the 2013 CMA Awards in a form-fitting Jovani gown. Later Michelle along with George Canyon presented and announced the CCMA 2014 Album of the Year award.

One More Girl – This attractive Canadian country music sister duo compose Carly McKillip and Britt McKillip were former 2010 winners of the Rising Star award. Their promotional material and posters ooze drop-dead gorgeous and on the CCMA green carpet they did not disappoint. Carly wore a black strapped mini dress and Britt donned a deep plunging aqua coloured mini dress both with cut-outs around the midriff. Soft make up complimented their natural complexions -  Pinterest Image
      
Tenille – The former CCMA Female artist wore a black Skater leather dress which had striped mesh panel inserts across the shoulders and ¾ length sleeves. She complimented it with lovely soft straight auburn coloured bangs bright green heels and bangles.

The Lovelocks – The duo coordinated and sweetened the carpet in honey dresses. Zoe Neuman went with a clean white strapless bodice with open back and a pleated gold skirt and wore a fascinator in her dark hair. Ali Raney had blond straight hair and her cream prom-like-cocktail sleeveless dress had a metallic belt and panels across the shoulders - Instagram/thelovelocks

The Stellas – They made for a great family picture when photographed on the carpet. Canadian natives Brad and MaryLynne Stella won the 2013 CCMA Group or Duo of the Year award.

Brad wore a black blazer, shirt and aqua coloured tie matched by his wife’s short high neck gown with sheer sleeves and train and wearing open toe platform sandals. Seen with daughters Lennon Ray Louise Stella (15-year old; born August 13, 1999) wearing a floor length black dress with lower cream panel design and 10-year old Maisy Jude Marion Stella (born December 13, 2003) in a pretty Asymmetrical cream outfit (with a black under skirt), with silver details and black piping and belt and cowgirl boots – Facebook Image
Lennon and Maisy are known to many as the two Conrad sisters by the TV-watching public as Maddie & Daphne from ABC's "Nashville." Lennon and Maisy did not perform but were on hand for social media duties.
Later Brad, Lennon and Maisy dressed more informally with Lennon changing into a flower print mini dress and strappy heels - Image
Then they took part in a taped CCMA Christmas special. Tiffany Gifford helped in finding them beautiful clothes for the event - Image

Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman from Little Big Town upped their game compared to recent country carpet appearances with Karen donning a dark blue sequinned full sleeve mini dress and Kimberly rocked her signature blonde frizzy and wild hair with a stunning beige vintage-styled lace embroidered number.
