Westerner Day’s Music Line Up for Wednesday Night is a MUST SEE

Westerner Day’s Music Line Up for Wednesday is… UNBELIEVABLE!

JESS MOSKALUKE

An internationally celebrated artist, Jess Moskaluke (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) continues to dazzle the country music world with her infectious love of country music that fuels her chart topping hits. Acclaimed as the first female Canadian country solo artist since [her childhood idol] Shania Twain to achieve platinum single status (with her hit track “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”), in 2016 she has achieved not one, but two consecutive Top 10 hits with her respective singles, “Kiss Me Quiet” and “Take Me Home”.

A multiple 2015 JUNO nominee, Moskaluke was also consecutively crowned the 2014, 2015 and 2016 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Award™ Female Artist of the Year, the first resident of Saskatchewan in the history of the awards to achieve this title. A proud small town girl, when she first posted her music online, no one could have anticipated the bright future that lay ahead.

Many years later with her growing fan base, she now has over 19 million views on YouTube to date. As of December 31, 2016, Moskaluke had the #1 Most Played Song (“Take Me Home”) at Canadian Country Radio in 2016 and was the top spun Canadian female artist for the second year in a row.  Here’s “Take Me Home.”

NICE HORSE

Born and raised on the Alberta prairies, Kaley Debra, Katie Marie, Brandi Caroline and Krista Lee are ready to unleash a jacked-up, bush-partying bolt of energy on the country music scene.

The band’s first year out of the gate is quickly garnering them a resume any veteran group would kill for. Following on the heels of a management deal with Coalition Music (Our Lady Peace, Tom Cochrane), the girls’ first shows included JUNOFest, an opening slot for the Kentucky Headhunters, and Big Valley Jamboree. Their first EP, produced by Jeff Dalziel (Washboard Union, Dan Davidson, Brett Kissel) and Bob Rock (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith, Joan Jett), is set to release in February 2017 when they hit the road with Tom Cochrane. It’s a country Cinderella story in the making, but one that’s well-earned.

Longtime friends and musical allies, joining forces (as horses) seemed long overdue. One strong, smart, powerful girl on her own can start a spark – but four together can create an explosion.

That’s a party. That’s a good time. That’s a Nice Horse.

Take a look at “Pony Up” the newest video from Nice Horse… this will get you on your horse and over to the Enmax Centrium!

HEY ROMEO

Whenever Hey Romeo get together to write and record, the result is a reflection of their commitment to their craft, to their fans, and, above all, to each other. Their latest EP, Ride With Me (Royalty Records/Sony Music Canada), is no exception.

Ride With Me dwells equally on the hope new relationships inspire and the places where love went wrong. And nowhere is that more evident than on lead single, ‘Pushin’ Up Daisies’ – a rock-fuelled stomp with a bit of aggression in the vein of the Dixie Chicks ‘Goodbye Earl – delivered with a smile and a smirk by lead singer, Stacie Roper.

Frankly, Ride With Me represents some of Hey Romeo’s strongest songwriting to date; a set of songs so true to life fans can slip into them and see their own lives, loves and heartaches reflected there on the very first listen.

About Hey Romeo: Over 13 years, Hey Romeo have played countless shows on their own and with artists including Sugarland, Darius Rucker, Gord Bamford, Johnny Reid, Alan Jackson, Terri Clark and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.

In 2008, the band was honoured with a Canadian Country Music Award for Top New Talent of the Year. Their 2010 album solidified their reputation with the Top 20 hits ‘Searchin’ For You’ and title track ‘That’s What I Am.’  Both That’s What I Am and 2012’s Twist Of Fate landed the band CCMA Awards for Group or Duo of the Year in 2011 and 2012, and ‘Hello Patio,’ the lead single from their 2014 EP, I Got This, won the 2014 Alberta Country Music Award (ACMA) for Song of the Year.  Here’s “That’s What I Am”.

102 Year Old Historical Home Welcomes Visitors to Alberta’s Modern Boomtown

Published

on

It should come as no surprise a town as innovative as Blackfalds would find an ingenious way to transform a heritage home built over 100 years ago.

Not long ago the future of the home was very much in doubt.  But interested parties came together with a plan.  Not only did they save the home… they transformed it into a unique public building which will play a significant role for decades to come.

The building is now called The Wadey Centre.  The model of collaboration behind this successful project caught the attention of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association.  Hoping to spur other towns to consider similar projects, the AUMA awarded Blackfalds with the prestigious Municipal Sustainability in Action Award just a few months after the Wadey Centre opened.

Click to see the story behind the Wadey Centre Project and enjoy a few glimpses of the 101 year-old heritage home which is enjoying new life as a Visitor Information Centre, and offices for the Blackfalds Chamber of Commerce and the Blackfalds Historical Society.
