With eight of Canada’s top burgeoning country music stars vying for the title, music fans have a tough choice to make!

With once-in-a-lifetime opportunities awaiting the three finalists, including cash prizes, live performances at Canadian country music events, a SOCAN songwriting trip, and a coveted performance spot at CMA Fest in Nashville, the contestants are calling on Canadians to help them push to the finish line.

This year the talented semi-finalists represent five Canadian provinces:
