Canadian Radio Music Awards Nominees Announced

CMW (Canadian Music Week) has announced the nominees for the 21st Annual Canadian Radio Music Awards (CRMA), to be held May 9 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in the Dominion Ballroom. 

The Canadian Radio Music Awards spotlight first-time charting artists on the airwaves. The CRMA nominees include artists who have hit the Canadian charts for the first time and who have achieved top airplay in different formats based on radio "spins," as recorded by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems (BDS) in 2017. Votes cast by program directors, music directors, and on-air personalities determine the winners.

Jessie Reyez, Dvbbs, and New City lead in nominations this year in the six categories.

Radio listeners from across the country can vote online for the Fans' Choice Award at cmw.net
