Originally a country girl from Langenberg, Saskatchewan, Jess grew up loving country music and idolizing the likes of Shania Twain. Now she’s the first female Canadian country artist (since 2008) to have a song (Drive me Away) in the Top 5 and her single, Cheap Wine and Cigarettes, hit Platinum single status—a feat last achieved by her idol, Shania. Jess boasts a Juno for Country Album of the Year and three consecutive CCMA awards for Female Artist of the Year.

Growing up in the small rural community of Standard, Alberta (population around 350), there is an authenticity and humbleness to the music of Drew Gregory that is undeniable. The songs of this award-winning, Alberta country-music artist are full of down-home realism, roots and grit, that come from years spent working the land as a farmer—an aspect of his life that is deeply connected to his talent as a musician, singer and songwriter. Drew is the 2015 ACMA Male Artist of the Year, 2016 YYC Male Artist of the Year, and winner of the 2016 ACMA Album of the Year.
