For the second year in a row, the Country Music Association of Ontario’s award show will be hosted by London.
London was announced as the host city Monday following a highly successful event last year, where Bowmanville’s Meghan Patrick stole headlines, winning album of the year for Grace and Grit, female artist of the year and the rising star award.
“After the tremendous response from the London community, we are proud to bring the CMAOntario Awards Show back to London for 2018 in partnership with Tourism London,” said Cathie Faint, president of CMAOntario.
Jason McCoy will be returning to host the awards show, set to go June 3rd, 2018.
The Awards are preceded by a weekend of activities, launching with the CMAOntario’s Legacy Show on Thursday, May 31, 2018. Other events over the weekend include the CMAOntario Charity Softball Challenge, Songs & Stories: The Songwriters Sessions, R2I TuneUp Conference, New Faces Showcase & Concert and our first Gospel Celebration.
The festivities conclude with the presentation of the CMAOntario Awards on June 3rd at Centennial Hall. A full line-up of performers and award nominees will be announced in early 2018.
