Show Notes

Welcome to episode No. 82 of the Nancy Duffy show for this Monday, May 10th, 2021!

Last week’s issue of St. Mary’s Independent highlighted the achievements of local CMAOntario nominees Callie McCullough and Darcy John. Originally from Stratford, McCullough is up for Rising Star of the Year and Songwriter of the Year – sharing the songwriter nomination with fellow writer, Scotty Kipfer, for “After Midnight.” Darcy, originally from St. Mary’s, Ontario, is one of five nominees for Male Artist of the Year.

The 2021 CMAOntario Festival & Awards, initially set to take place at the end of May, have been delayed until early fall. The rescheduled event will take the format of a drive-in concert over three days from September 3rd to 5th at the Ancaster Fairgrounds in Hamilton. The announcement comes in response to Premier Ford’s call for greater COVID restrictions, and it means that nominees and fans alike will have to wait a bit longer to learn who’s won! 

But that doesn’t change all the good ‘feels’ for the nominees – Callie McCullough and Darcy John joined me from Nashville for a lively conversation about road trips, foot-long hot dogs, and what’s up next in their world of music.
