Juno for George Canyon

George Canyon took home his second Juno Award last weekend- the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy - for Country Recording of the Year. The award was given for his album Somebody Wrote Love, which was released in July 2006 through Universal Music Canada.
Canyon, who accepted the award on Saturday night’s awards dinner in Saskatoon, also presented an award on Sunday night’s CTV television broadcast and participated in the Juno Fest concert and autograph session, as well as The Juno Cup hockey game.
His new single, “I Want You to Live,” is the latest in a string of hits for the singer. It is currently in the top 10 on the Canadian Country charts at radio and the video is in rotation at CMT Canada. The clip, which features members of the Canadian Forces, has been warmly received for its portrayal of the sacrifices that military families make. Canyon traveled to Afghanistan in the spring of 2006 with Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Peter MacKay to perform for the troops and hopes to have the opportunity to entertain there again in the near future.
