The CCMA Awards Broadcast will air at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC-TV, with encore airings on CMT (Canada) starting at 10 pm ET.

Alberta’s own Brett Kissel holds the distinction of being the youngest-ever artist nominated for a CCMA Award, when he received his first CCMA Rising Star Award nomination in 2006 at just 15 years old. Since signing with Warner Music Canada earlier this year, accolade for Kissel’s music has steadily grown. His major label debut single ‘Started With A Song’ set a record for becoming the most added track at Canadian country radio in its first week.
Tickets for the CCMA Awards Broadcast are available at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 1-855-985-5000 or online at ticketmaster.ca. Ticket prices range from $34 – $90.25, plus service charges.
