July 13, 2012 (Toronto, ON) –
One of the most talked about events at PotashCorp Country Music Week 2012 just got hotter! Featuring performances from Canadian country artists, Gord Bamford, Jason Blaine, Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee, George Canyon, Doc Walker, Jessie Farrell, Hey Romeo, High Valley, One More Girl, Aaron Pritchett, Jimmy Rankin, Deric Ruttan, Dallas Smith and Michelle Wright, CCMA FanFest will entertain fans with an afternoon of fantastic music. Taking place on Saturday, September 8 from 11 AM to 4 PM at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon, SK, CCMA FanFest is the perfect opportunity to enjoy performances from the best artists that country music has to offer, with opportunities to get up close and personal with them at a public autograph signing and best of all, it’s free of charge.

With event sponsors CMT, HMV and SaskLotteries, CCMA FanFest will pay tribute to the fans who have shown their dedication to country music over the past years. Whether they are old or new fans of Canadian country music, this group of performers will give the people of Saskatchewan an event not to forget as they sing along to their favourite country singles with their favourite country artists. Hosted by local radio personalities from both CJWW and The Bull in Saskatoon, CCMA FanFest is a family event with something for attendees of all ages, including the new and exciting KidZone, sponsored by TCU Financial.

To fill the last coveted performance spot, the CCMA is launching the official CCMA FanFest Performance Poll contest. Allowing select emerging artists across the country to compete through a CCMA FanFest Facebook page poll, this contest will see the artist who ranks the highest on the poll rewarded with the opportunity to perform with Canada’s country elite.

In addition to the country talent appearing at Prairieland Park during CCMA FanFest, the CCMA Rock’n Country Cabaret will take place at the same venue on Friday, September 7 and will pay tribute to the well-known Saskatchewan format.
