Released early Spring 2017 and signed in 2016 with Royalty Records / Sony Music Canada, Chris Buck Band’s debut album, boasts over 2.2 million streams on Spotify, featuring 4x top 40 country radio hits including, “Leave Your Light On“, the club country dance sensation “Giddy Up“, “Sun Sets Down” and their billboard top 20 radio smash “That’s When You Know ft Kira Isabella”.
So honoured and grateful to have even been recognized! I co-wrote on every song on this album, this means even more because of that. Won’t forget this one – Chris Buck
Alongside this incredible accolade, band member Phil Puxley won Special Instrument of the Year for Banjo and Jeff Johnson of Baileyway Entertainment took home Producer of the Year.
It’s an honour to get to share in the creative processes and recorded journeys of the artists and bands I produce. They include me in their musical vision and I will always value that bond of trust and do my best for everyone I work with. More than winning an award like a CCMA or BCCMA is the friendships and the community that growth that comes from collectively celebrating this amazing music business. – Jeff Johnson
The award show was hosted on Sunday October 22nd, 2017 at the Molson Canadian Theatre (formally Red Robinson Theatre) – Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam, BC, where winners were revealed.
