Message from the President

Dear Members:

Happy New Year! Let this New Year be the one where all your dreams come true.
2013 was a very successful year for the CMAO due to the passion and commitment shown by our members and the country music community. I want to thank our members and all our supporters and volunteers. With your continued support, we hope to continue to build on our success and make 2014 an even greater success.

Don’t forget that our 2014 awards show submissions are open until February 4, 2014. We have two new awards in 2014: Roots Artist or Group of the Year and Record Producer(s) of the Year. If you haven’t put forward an application, please do so before you miss your chance to get recognized by your peers and the industry. Please go to

Also, tickets for the awards show are on sale. I recommend that you buy your tickets early as last year there were some disappointed folks who waited too long and we were sold out. Once again there’ll be a rush when we start announcing the performances.

I want to thank SOCAN and The Remington Group for their continued commitment to our awards show; SOCAN for continuing to support songwriters by sponsoring the SOCAN Songwriter(s) of the Year award and The Remington Group for continuing to support bands and groups by sponsoring the Group or Duo of the Year award. We have very limited sponsorship opportunities left. If you would like to support the CMAO and take advantage of this marketing opportunity, please contact me at 647-231-CMAO (2626) or via email at

Thank you for the continued support.

Sam Arraj, CPA, CA
