Dallas Smith and Billy Ray Cyrus to Co-Host the 2019 CCMA Awards


August 6, 2019 (Calgary, AB) – The Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) and Global are proud to announce that reigning CCMA Male Artist of the Year Dallas Smith and recent Billboard record-breaking singer, songwriter and actor Billy Ray Cyrus are co-hosting the 2019 CCMA Awards presented by TD. The 2019 CCMA Awards will air live on Global from Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on September 8 at 9 p.m. EST/PST. Global has also extended its broadcast to stream on Twitter and broadcast live on Corus radio stations Country 105 (Calgary), CISN Country 103.9 (Edmonton), and Country 104 (London/Woodstock), bringing the 2019 CCMA Awards to more people than ever before.

Ahead of the 2019 CCMA Awards, Dallas Smith and Billy Ray Cyrus each sat down with ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey to talk new music, hosting an award show, and more. Watch ET Canada tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. EST/PST to catch the exclusive one on one interviews. Click here to watch a promo.

“I’m thrilled to be co-hosting this year’s CCMA Awards with Billy Ray Cyrus – he’s a legend!” shared Smith. “This is going to be a good time Calgary and I can’t wait to celebrate Canadian country’s biggest night with everyone.”

A multiple JUNO and CCMA Award-winning entertainer, Dallas Smith is one of the most celebrated artists in Canadian Country music. Smith, always one to dominate uncharted territory, is the first and only Canadian country artist in the Nielsen BDS era, to have seven #1 singles, including four consecutive chart-toppers from the same album. Nominated for four 2019 CCMA Awards (Apple Music Fans’ Choice, MNP Male Artist of the Year, FORD Album of the Year, Entertainer of the Year), Smith will be heading out on the road across Canada following his co-host duties as part of the Friends Don’t Let Friends Tour Alone Tour this fall, alongside Dean Brody.

“This is really a full circle moment for me because I received my first ever platinum record plaque while I was in Canada in the 90s. We also shot the series ‘Doc’ in Toronto, so it feels like coming home every time I’m in Canada. I’m really looking forward to co-hosting the show with Dallas,” Cyrus shared.

This is the first time that Billy Ray Cyrus will be hosting an award show and his first time taking to the CCMA Awards stage. The award-winning artist has been making headlines since his 1992 breakout single “Achy Breaky Heart” and has continued to make waves in the industry since. His country-rap, hybrid collaboration with Lil Nas X continues to break chart-topping records, hitting 18 weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts making it the longest-running #1 single in history and the new single “Chevys and Fords” is already a country music playlist essential.

Tickets to the 2019 CCMA Awards Show are available for purchase at ticketmaster.ca. For each ticket sold, $1 will go directly to the MusicCounts in support of their year-round music initiatives.

Fans are encouraged to follow updates for the 2019 CCMA Awards presented by TD via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
