Two months after the Calgary Stampede, the city will be transformed into the nation’s country-music capital as the Canadian Country Music Association holds a four-day celebration culminating with its annual award show at the Saddledome.Association president Tracy Martin announced details about Calgary’s Country Music Week on Wednesday morning.Activities will run from Sept. 5 to 8. The Canadian Country Music Awards will be held Sept. 8.It’s the first time the awards have been held in the city since 2005. Martin said it feels like the CCMA is “coming home.”“We haven’t been here in well over a decade,” she said. “Calgary obviously has the DNA of country in it.”Martin made a few announcements about the events that will be featured in the city. That includes the Sept. 6 CCMA Legends Show at Jack Singer Concert Hall featuring Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Alan Doyle, Jade Eagleson, Lindsay Ell, Tim Hicks, Andrew Hyatt, Aaron Pritchett, The Reklaws, The Wilkinsons and Michelle Wright.A songwriting series will be held all four days, featuring Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy; Nashville writer Pam Tillis — daughter of Mel Tillis whose songs have been performed by Conway Twitty — Dolly Parton and Juice Newton; and Kelly Archer, who has written songs for Cassadee Pope, Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood.A “Fans’ Village” will also be set up in downtown Calgary, which will feature a number of activities and performances that will be announced in July.Martin also announced Nashville’s Old Dominion, whose hits include No Such Thing as a Broken Heart and Written in Sand, and Grand Prairie native Tenille Townes as performers for the Sept. 8 awards show at the Saddledome.More performers and the host for the show, which will be broadcast live across the country, will be named at a later date.Mayor Naheed Nenshi, decked out in cowboy shirt and boots for the occasion, said Country Music Week is expected to draw 6,000 to 7,000 visitors to the city and have an economic impact of $10 million.Nenshi said he was surprised the festivities haven’t been held in Calgary since 2005.“When you think country music and you think what city loves country music, where is the home of country music, you come up with Calgary,” he said. “Next week we are kicking off, by far, the largest music festival in Canada. It’s a festival that happens to have a rodeo attached: the Calgary Stampede. We really believe in this stuff. I’m so thrilled not only that the awards are coming but that we’re going to have Country Music Week to showcase that kind of music.”While there are many more announcements to come, Martin confirmed that the lineups will include local talent. On top of Townes, who will be making her first awards-show performance, and Lindsay Ell, a Calgarian expat currently making waves in Nashville who will perform as part of the Legends Show, she said that Nice Horse, Brett Kissel and Gord Bamford will also be participating.Speaking of locals, Calgarian Paul Brandt will receive the CCMA Slaight Music Humanitarian Award for his #NotInMyCity movement, which raises awareness and takes action against child sexual exploitation and sex trafficking in Canada.
