Gord Bamford is one of the most awarded male vocalists in Canadian country music history. He has received 24 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards including wins for Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Male Artist of the Year. He also has multi Juno Award nominations, is the two-time winner (2013 and 2015) of Nashville's Country Music Association CMA Global Country Artist Award. The trophies are on the strength of his 25 Top 10 singles in Canada including the No. 1 smash hit When Your Lips Are So Close.

Bamford has spent the better part of 20 years honing his craft and perfecting his sound, with his current single Dive Bar from his eighth studio album Neon Smoke, racing up the radio charts and into the Top 10 where his songs are accustomed to being.

Jojo Mason, meanwhile, was playing junior hockey in Victoria when an injury took him out of the sports game and into his second passion, country music. The singer-songwriter has already scored four Top 10 singles and his new song Future is set to light the red lamp again, following in the footsteps of his debut smash It's All Good, then Good Kinda Love, and Something To Wrap My Heart Around.

He was also nominated for the 2017 CCMA Rising Star Award when the event was held in his home province of Saskatchewan.
