"Canadian born Aaron Pritchett, has proven himself to be one of the hardest working and sought after artists in the business. With numerous top ten hits, music videos, and tours with Toby Keith and Brooks & Dunn, and many others, Aaron has gained a significant following across Canada. Over his career he has earned many accolades and awards, including a CCMA for Independent Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year in 2007 for the anthem, “Hold My Beer”. His passion and intensity on stage coupled with his unwavering dedication to fans sets him apart from other acts and has helped solidify his success.
Growing up in small-town Northern BC, Aaron drew his earliest musical influences from 80's Rock, but the transition to country music came naturally, "It was based on being able to relate to the stories that country songs told. Those stories were a lot like mine. I was going fishing, camping, and riding buses to hockey tournaments in even smaller towns than my own, life was a lot more country than rock and roll. That down-home feel that resonated with me is what I strive to convey in my music today."
Still there is no doubt that his rock roots have had a major influence on Aarons performances. Acclaimed for bringing "rock energy" to "country audiences," Pritchett is able to whip a stadium full of chanting fans into a frenzy while hammering out hit songs like "Hold My Beer" or "Let’s Get Rowdy."
All of this paired with Aaron’s passion and drive to keep playing has created one of the most exciting shows in the country music industry.
He's more Mellencamp then Merle. His lyrics champion the 'Blue Collar Hero' in a manner that resonates of Springsteen and other rock legends, but it is in the country music format that Charlie Major finds his home.
Rising to the forefront of the Canadian Music scene in the early to mid-nineties, Charlie had a heyday at radio as he became the first Canadian artist in history to score six BDS #1 hits off of his debut album. Nine more chart topping hits would follow, and Charlie would crisscross the world headlining tours and connecting with his fans at fairs and festivals.
But as the old saying goes "fame comes with a cost" and it wasn't long before a major US label signed Charlie, moved him and his family to Nashville. The head of the label told Charlie his sound needed to change and become "more country." The marketing department thought his records might sell better in the US if he appeared on the album cover in a Stetson, and added more fiddles and steel guitars to his edgy songs. What the label did not know was that even though Major might sell out concerts, he was not the type of guy who 'sells out' his career. Charlie's integrity to remain true to his fans, himself and his music was immovable and so he relinquished the dream of the big US record deal and returned to his homeland where he continues to be embraced. Over a decade later Charlie is as successful as ever, he headlines his own tours and pairs up with the likes of ZZ Top to rock arenas full of fans from coast to coast. He has sold nearly half a million records in Canada alone and won 3 Juno Awards and 7 CCMA's, but you wouldn't know it to meet him, and he would not tell you. He wears the cloak of humility, just like the hardworking folks that he represents in his music. Charlie’s latest album, On The Evening Side, is in stores now.
Truly a Canadian legend and one of the accomplished 'nice guys' in the game, Charlie would not have it any other way.
Jerry is a Canadian Country Recording artist from Dauphin MB, who has gained popularity performing festivals across Canada, with acts such as Johnny Reid, Shane Yellowbird, and Jason Blaine, and is making his mark on the Canadian Country Music scene. Having played venues ranging from acoustic performances in small lounges, to larger settings such as Dauphin Countryfest and We-fest Jerry continues to expand his fan base with his upbeat rhythms and commanding stage presence. Through his music he has secured two National # 1 hits with his debut album "Campground Cowboy" (nominated for "Best Country CD" at the 2010 APCMA's), which displays a hint of the traditional music the Winnipegger grew up with, balanced with today's contemporary country.
