Broadcast Date – October 25, 2017
Well back in early September I was in SASKATOON for Canadian Country Music Week to shoot a special at the CCMA Awards, catch up with old friends and meet new country artists. One of those fresh faces – from the province of Newfoundland and Labrador was Mallory Johnson.
Who arrived at the annual gathering after winning the association’s nationwide competition – the 2017 CCMA Spotlight.
We sat down to chat about that opportunity, her stellar Nashville ties, her deep country roots, her great love of the homeland and so much more…here’s my conversation with NL recording artist Mallory Johnson!
