JASON MCCOY WILL ROCK THE CMA

JASON MCCOY RETURNS AS HOST OF THE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION OF ONTARIO AWARDS 

 

TORONTO, ON – The Country Music Association of Ontario (CMAO) is thrilled to announce Jason McCoy
of The Road Hammers will return as host of the 2016 CMAO Awards
(presented by Slaight Music) for the third year in a row. McCoy,
an
ever-engaging and entertaining host, is a popular fan and industry
favourite and will bring his own brand of energy, quips and comedic
timing to the night.

“It’s
an honour to be returning as host of the CMAO’s. This year has been the
best yet for Ontario artists, and it’s great to see so much support
from the industry and fans alike.” McCoy says.
 

As a 25-year veteran of the entertainment industry and two-time CCMA Male Vocalist of the Year, McCoy
is the king of reinvention. Growing up in the small town of Minesing,
Ontario, McCoy admired the well-rounded artistry of the classic
entertainers, from Roger Miller and Johnny Cash to Merle Haggard and
Glen Campbell. Armed with a guitar and a dream, McCoy set out at the age
of 19 to follow his own path to stardom. Together with The Road Hammers
he has won five CCMAs. As a solo artist, he’s racked up multiple CCMA
and CMA awards, along with a Gold album.  

As
creator and front man of The Road Hammers, McCoy took on the country
rock genre and guided the band to unprecedented success throughout
Canada and the United States, picking up a Platinum album, CCMA Group of
the Year award, and a JUNO award along the way. The band are heading to
Australia or the CMC Rocks Festival this March and were recently
announced as performers at the first CMT Festival this July. 

The
Western Swing Authority also returns to the awards as the event’s house
band. The award show will be held Monday, May 30, 2016, at the Flato
Markham Theatre. For ticket information visit
