Canada’s biggest night in music is coming up.

That’s right, the 2019 Juno Awards are less than three weeks away and a brand new set of live performances has just been revealed.

The Canadian Academy of Arts and Sciences (CARAS) and CBC announced the updated lineup in an official release on Monday morning.

Indie pop singer and six-time Juno nominee Coeur De Pirate will take the stage next month along with the 2018 Polaris Music Prize-winning Jeremy Dutcher.

All the way from Québec, Loud (born Simon Cliche Trudeau) — one of the province’s most popular rappers — will make his national television debut, as well as Ontario native brother-and-sister country duo, The Reklaws.

“I know intimately what it feels like to be on the Juno stage and I feel truly blessed to play a new role for an organization that has supported me throughout my career,” the 51-year-old added.

On Jan. 16, it was revealed that Hart will also be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony.

“I got a phone call from Allan Reid, who is the president of CARAS (the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences),” Hart told Global News after being asked how he heard about the induction.

“I had never spoken with him before so I was completely surprised by the phone call and obviously blown away by the news,” he added.

That same day, Hart released his first single in more than 20 years, Dreaming Time Again. An accompanying EP of the same name was also announced and is set for a release later in 2019, as well as an extensive Canadian tour commencing in May.

As a musician and songwriter, I never held the goal to one day be inducted into the Hall of Fame,” he continued, “and it’s really not something I ever expected to happen. Now that it has, it’s just… like a dream come true.” [Laughs]
