Sunday April 2, 2017, at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Canadian Beats participated at The JUNO Awards, in the Media Q&A Room, with selected winners, nominees, performers and presenters of the night. With well over 100 media outlets being represented and artists only being able to stay long enough for two or three questions, we all took turns. Please enjoy seeing who all came to visit us and what they had to say.

Hello everyone! My name is Linda and I have been a fan of Canadian Music for as long as I can remember. That counts for way too many decades than I want to admit to! I have three primary passions in my life, music, photography and writing. When I can combine them all, I feel I am right where I should be. Though I can appreciate all genres of music, my particular favourite is Country. Canadian Country is moving in leaps and bounds. I love how it is progressing and I’m thankful that I can be a small part of it.
