MusicNL is thrilled to announce Mallory Johnson as the winner of the 2017 CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest!
The contest closed on June 16/17 with a tally of votes taken from an online poll involving song submissions from Provincial Country Music Industry Associations across Canada, including MusicNL. Mallory will receive a full delegate pass to PotashCorp Country Music Week, accommodations and airfare to the event, and a one-year membership to both the CCMA and MusicNL. Mallory released her debut single and music video “Tupelo” this year and the hit single “Good Mistake to Make” in May. Since her debut release, Mallory has been busy promoting and performing her music. She recently wrapped up her U.S. radio tour in 2016, and was a featured songwriter on “Four Chords and the Truth” in Toronto, showcased during CCMA week in London ON. She also performed for the American Ambassador, and has shared the stage with artists like Alan Doyle, Dean Brody, and Rascal Flatts.
“Mallory Johnson is one of the best country musicians to emerge from our province in the past few years and we know she’ll take advantage of this incredible opportunity,” said Rebekah Robbins, Program, Marketing and Communications Director for MusicNL. “The CCMA Spotlight Performance Contest is a wicked way for provinces to put forward our homegrown talent. We can’t thank the voters enough for their support.”
“Thank you to the CCMA, MusicNL, and all of those who took the time to vote and give me this unbelievable opportunity to perform in front of my peers, mentors and industry professionals,” said Mallory Johnson. “I’m overwhelmed with the amount of love and support I’ve received through the whole process, and I can’t wait to represent the East Coast and my beautiful province of Newfoundland and Labrador during this year’s PotashCorp Country Music Week in Saskatoon!”
