For Immediate Release:
The BC Country Music Association has just released their final ballot nominees. Becca has been nominated in 4 categories including Female Artist of the Year, Traditional / Roots Artist of the Year, Don Adams Industry Supporter and Single of the Year for “I Don’t Do Love Songs.”
After a banner year, Becca is heading into award season on the success of her sophomore album “Truth” – recorded at the legendary Armoury Studios under the production guidance of the McKillip ‘Dream Team’ (CCMA award-winners Tom & Carly McKillip) and cream-of-the-crop musicians Darren Savard, Pat Steward, John Ellis, John Dymond, Darryl Havers, Mike Sanyshyn, Kristian Alexandrov, Britt McKillip, Shannon Gaye and Gord Maxwell. Becca’s “TRUTH” includes multi-nominated singles “Mountain Child” and “Stranded” along with eight brand new songs to round out a full-length studio album. “TRUTH” resonates with compelling musical performances. The project is a carefully curated collection of original songs – co-written by Becca with Byron Hill, Aaron Goodvin, Bryan White and other Nashville hitmakers – that showcase a real musical authenticity, potent vocals and the unvarnished perspective of a true artist.
Her newly nominated single “I Don’t Do Love Songs” was recently featured alongside Jon Pardi in the W network film “A Summer Romance.” The song is a nod to her traditional roots (Becca was raised on the road by songwriter, performer, Hall-Of-Fame recording artist and dad Kenny Hess) which was co-written with her dad.
Becca spent 2019 on “The Songs That Wrote Country Music” tour with award winners & hall of fame members Kenny Hess, Tom McKillip, John Ellis and Mike Sanyshyn, honouring the songwriters behind the classic country hits we know and love. Focusing on the women of country music’s rich history, Becca performed hits such as Patsy Cline’s “She’s Got You” telling the stories of Hank Cochrane and other legendary songwriters that paved the way. When she was not on the road she was producing the 2018 CCMA nominated Festival of the Year: the Rockin’ River Music Fest, which featured Jason Aldean as one of many headline acts.
“I am so grateful to have the industry support me as an artist at home in BC, it means so much to me! I am also truly honoured to be included as an industry supporter through my production work with Rockin’ River and other events, such as the BCCMAs!”
