The Washboard Union wins Finest Group/Duo at CCMAs for 2nd year in a row


The Washboard Union took house the very first award of the evening at the 2019 CCMA Awards at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday.

It is the second year in a row that the Vancouver trio — Chris Duncombe, Aaron Grain and David Roberts — has won the Finest Group or Duo Award, and their sixth CCMA Award all round.

The CCMA Awards take place annually and serve as the most significant evening in Canadian nation music.

It honours some of the greatest nation artists across the nation, these who created an vital influence in the sector more than the final year.

Worldwide News spoke with the She Gets Me rockers final month to speak this year’s CCMAs. We applied the chance to ask especially why the group loves the annual occasion so substantially.

Normally, when you are playing reside — particularly in the summers — you are genuinely busy,” mentioned Roberts. “There’s this entire behind-the-scenes point, you come and you go, you are setting up, you are playing your show and then you are in the bustle till the subsequent show. But the CCMAs, on the other hand, is good for the reason that you in fact have time to chat with people today that you haven’t had a opportunity to connect with more than the year. You discover out about their households, what they’re performing and how their years have been going and points like that so it is genuinely good. Absolutely everyone from across the nation comes, as well, which is amazing.”

When we began playing at the CCMAs, I guess I never ever genuinely believed when we began the band that there would be an organization that would bring an whole genre of music with each other. But it did. And it continues to… all the time. So I feel it is genuinely cool. Not only do we get to see a bunch of our pals who’ve been playing like crazy like us, but we get to see a entire new wave of nation artists as effectively that the CCMAs have supported, just like they did with us,” agreed Duncombe.
