The 2016 CCMA Awards Show, celebrated eight CCMA Award categories in an evening filled with memorable moments and knock-out performances. This year’s show was staged at Budweiser Gardens, in London for the first time in the show’s 30+ year broadcast history.

Here are some pics from the Green Carpet:

The night had two multiple winners: Brett Kissel and Dean Brody. Brett Kissel took home the coveted Fans’ Choice Award and Male Artist of the Year, while Dean Brody took home CCMA Awards for Single of the Year and CMT Video of the Year, both for his song, “Bring Down The House”.

Gord Bamford received Album of the Year for Tin Roof; his third time receiving this accolade. Jess Moskaluke took home the CCMA Award for Female Artist of the Year for the third consecutive year, and Group or Duo of the Year went to the brothers of High Valley for the second year in a row. The CCMA Award for Rising Star went to The Washboard Union.

The evening’s high-octane performances were powerful and passionate. Gord Bamford, Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee, Terri Clark, Cold Creek County, Tim Hicks with Colin James, High Valley, Brett Kissel with Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Madeline Merlo, Jess Moskaluke and Johnny Reid all had the fans at Budweiser Gardens either on the edge of their seats, or out of them, with exceptional stage presence and vocal delivery.

The show’s international guests were also crowd favourites. PLATINUM-selling Kelsea Ballerini performed her chart-topping hit, “Peter Pan” while GRAMMY-nominated Sam Hunt performed his #1 song, “House Party”.
