Codie Prevost nominated for RISING STAR at
The 2011 Canadian Country Music Awards
Saskatchewan’s Codie Prevost is nominated for the “Rising Star” Award at the 2011 Canadian Country Music Awards which are to be presented in Hamilton on Monday, September 12th at Copps Colosieum. His latest album “Get Loud” is also nominated for “Album Design of the Year”.
“It’s been a great year that included a lot of firsts for me as a recording artist. My singles/videos “Rolling Back To You” & “Standing Still” played on CMT, “Rolling Back To You” hit the TOP 40 charts, I was featured on ET Canada, nominated for a Lieutenant Governor’s Arts Award, “Get Loud” appeared on Soundscan’s Top selling albums in Canada, I performed in France and my hometown of Archerwill put up two signs on the main highway that read “Welcome to Archerwill Home of Country Recording Artist Codie Prevost”. I feel very fortunate to have the support of my family, friends, and fans as well as Factor, The Saskatchewan Arts Board, SaskMusic and the Saskatchewan Country Music Association as they’ve helped me build a solid foundation to achieve this goal in my career”.
It was only 6 years ago that Prevost started his music career by slugging it out in small town bars across Saskatchewan for $100 a night as a solo acoustic artist in an effort to gain experience performing in front of a crowd. Using a grass roots approach since day one Prevost is truly an Indie artist. Along with his manager Alain Leblanc they started their own record label called “Good Spirit Records” and have built Prevost’s career from the ground up.
In September Prevost will be attending the 2011 CCMA awards weekend in Hamilton which will be broadcast on CBC television with an encore broadcast on CMT.
