Nashville-based Ojibwa country singer Crystal Shawanda, who has two nominations, said her song flows into a chopped-up trio of tracks.
“(My song is) worked into a medley of songs with other artists … I’m looking forward to seeing how the arrangements flow into one another (live),” she said.
According to a press release, “A classic rock song gets a little twisted when a group of male performers hit the stage together.” It’s safe to assume this gang includes Newfoundland folk rockers Great Big Sea, who perform with singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman and genre-bending multi-instrumentalists Eccodek.
Also performing are rock icon and 18-time Juno Award-winner Bryan Adams, Dallas Green’s City and Colour, R&B singer Divine Brown, singer-songwriter Serena Ryder and alt-country singer Kathleen Edwards. Sarah McLachlan, Nickelback, Simple Plan, Sam Roberts and The Stills will also perform.
