Toronto, ON – Announced this morning at the 2012 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) press conference, Alberta-based trio Hey Romeo have been nominated for three CCMA Awards including Group or Duo of the Year, Fans’ Choice Award and Interactive Artist of the Year. In 2011, Hey Romeo claimed the award for Group of the Year and the All-Star Band Award for Keyboard Player of the Year, an award that keyboardist Rob Shapiro has won the last three years.  
“We are knocked out at being nominated for three major CCMA awards,” Says Rob Shapiro. “A big
Hey Romeo hug to our fans, fellow CCMA members and friends, your
support means the world to us all. Congratulations to all of our fellow
nominees, its been a big year for Canadian country music.” 
Fans’ Choice Award voting begins today at www.ccma.org and closes Friday, September 7. The
winner will be announced at the CCMA Awards, which will be broadcast
live from Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, SK. on Sunday, September 9,
2012. Hey Romeo will also be performing at the CCMA FanFest on
Saturday, September 8 at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon.
Hey Romeo released their third studio album, Twist of Fate
(Royalty Records), on June 26, 2012. The record was co-produced by Hey
Romeo and Byron Hill (Gary Allan, Gord Bamford) and features 12 songs
including the first single, “Jump Back In.”
They recently
joined country icon Gord Bamford on select dates during his cross-Canada
tour and hosted the first annual Alberta Country Music Awards at
Westerner Park in Red Deer.
The band have also opened for
legendary country acts including Sugarland and Johnny Reid, making a
name for themselves within the Canadian country music industry.
In 2010, Hey Romeo’s sophomore album, That’s What I Am,
sparked five hit singles including “Searchin’ For You,” which went Top
20 on both the Mediabase and BDS charts, and “That’s What I Am” which
peaked at #13 on the Billboard Canada Emerging Artist chart. A year
after the release of their debut album, the band took home a 2008 CCMA
Award for Top New Group of the Year.
