It’s a big day for Canadian singer/songwriter Chad Brownlee (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada), the proud recipient of his first JUNO Award nomination, announced yesterday during the press conference held at The Design Exchange in Toronto. Brownlee’s 2012 album release “Love Me Or Leave Me” is nominated for Country Album of the Year at the Canadian music awards known as the JUNO Awards.
The former professional hockey player shares his excitement:
“This is obviously a big moment in a musicians career; being nominated alongside such phenomenal talent. I wouldn’t be at this point today without all of those who have helped my music grow. Thank you!”
Brownlee released his new single “Crash” yesterday to Canadian radio, with the video currently in heavy rotation on CMT. A Canadian with a philanthropic spirit, Brownlee has partnered with the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation, performing at camps across Canada and sharing the joys of music with the campers. In addition to his charitable work, Brownlee had a busy touring year in 2012, including co-headlining the national Boys of Fall Tour. He will continue to tour throughout 2013, with new performance dates to be announced in the coming months.
The 42nd annual JUNO Awards broadcast will air on CTV from the Brandt Centre in Regina, SK on Sunday, April 21, 2013.
