2017 Canadian Radio Music Award Winners

Fresh off winning a JUNO Award as Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Edmonton’s Ruth B received a couple more trophies to deck her shelf. The 20th annual Canadian Radio Music Awards (CMRAs) were recently held at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel. The CRMAs honour first-time charting artists whose songs achieve top radio spins in different formats. Winners are determined based on votes from those in the broadcast industry. The 2017 shindig housed performances by Bleeker, James Barker Band, Jonathan Roy, Modern Space, the aforementioned Ruth B, and The Washboard Union. Folk pop group The Strumbellas, who recently earned a JUNO win for Single of the Year, won two CRMAs, interestingly in the “rock” categories. The band also won Factor’s Breakthrough Artist award. Nominations are below with winners bolded in indigo. In addition to these, Justin Bieber received the Chart Topper award.
