Johnny Reid is scheduled to visit Regina on Aug. 24 for a special outdoor concert on the grounds of the Conexus Arts Centre.
The award-winning artist — a force on the Canadian country music scene for 20 years — has been recognized 26 times by the Canadian Country Music Association, beginning with the Rising Star award in 2006.
Reid has won three Junos for country album of the year (Dance With Me, 2010; A Place Called Love, 2011; and, Fire It Up, 2013), followed by two more Junos for adult contemporary album of the year (A Christmas Gift To You, 2014; and What Love Is All About, 2016) as well as a SOCAN national achievement award (2016).
Presented by Brandt, the show includes special guests Tim & The Glory Boys.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday at noon. Details at conexusartscentre.ca/johnny-reid.
Saskatchewan’s Jess Moskaluke has released a new music video for her previously released single, Not What Ya Think.
The video format is described as a first for the Juno-winning artist from Langenburg. She teamed up with Munz Media over the last few months to create a unique video which incorporates live action elements with over 2,500 hand-drawn animations.
The song, released early this year, was co-written by Moskaluke, Corey Crowder and Emily Shackelton. It “showcases an evolved and dynamic country sound for the artist, who turns the tables on a breakup anthem. The latest single and video are just a taste of what is to come, with more music from Moskaluke set for release later this year,” says a media release.
“The video for ‘Not What Ya Think’ is exactly that — not what ya think!” adds Moskaluke. “I really wanted to go the unexpected route on this one to play on the title and show that you really just never can predict someone’s next move. I love working with my friends at Munz Media, and they knocked it out of the park with this one.”
