Country Music Week – Day 4

CountryMusicWeek2015logoRGB

For the first time since 1982 Country Music Week is in my hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Four full days of country music leading up to the CCMA Award show on Sunday Night, which will be showed on CBC, which will also include performances by international superstars  Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett.

Over the next four days I will be writing about the events that I was lucky enough to attend, so make sure to check back daily.

Day 4 – Sunday, September 13, 2015

Today was the final day of Country Music Week in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Events on the go today were the John Deere Green Carpet and the Award show itself.

I ended up being really tired from the night before (and it was raining so I didn’t end up going to the Green Carpet event.)

The CCMA Awards marked the debut of the renovated Scotiabank Centre. I didn’t leave my seat all night so I unfortunately didn’t get to test out any of the new concession stands, however the new seats are much comfier (and nicer) than the old orange seats.

This was my first time attending an award show, and what a cool experience it was. It was very interesting seeing the behind the scenes, and what goes on when at home you have a commercial break.

The show was opened up by Dallas Smith, great choice to get the night going.

His performance was followed by Autumn Hill and then Tim Hicks.

After Tim Hicks performed, Paul Brandt performed with Jess Moskaluke “I’m an Open Road (feat. Jess Moskaluke) – Single” I have had this song on repeat ever since!
