CMAO Awards 2019 Wrap and Photo Review

On a gorgeous spring Sunday evening, the Ontario country music community gathered in Ottawa to celebrate artists and industry leaders who are making music across Canada at the 2019 Country Music Association of Ontario (CMAO) Awards!

From the red carpet through to the award show, it was a night of great talent, surprises, lots of celebration, and some fantastic performances.

It was also an opportunity to see some of our favourite humans in the Canadian country music community. The Awards show was hosted again by the inimitable Jason McCoy, grabbing our attention from the beginning by driving a motorcycle across the stage. He delivered humour, respect, and kept everyone fully engaged throughout the show.

The Western Swing Authority played house band again this year, and they did a fantastic job.

The big winner of the night was Meghan Patrick, who took home five of the six awards she was nominated for including Songwriter of the Year (along with Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver), Album of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, Music Video of the Year, and Fans' Choice.

New for 2019 was the addition of the Francophone Artist or Group of the Year, and we were thrilled to have winner Gabrielle Goulet perform for us.

We've got photos of winners and performers in chronological order, and if you want to skip to the end to read the winners list first, we won't be mad.
