Securing two of the five nominations in his category was a good sign that Oshawa artist Brandon Heard was going to come away a winner.
Heard was bestowed the honour for best album design for his work on The Boom Chucka Boys’ album Ramble at the recent Canadian Country Music Awards in Halifax.
The Oshawa-based artist was also nominated for his work on Chad Brownlee’s The Fighters.
Heard wasn’t the only Oshawa resident to be nominated for an award, with KX96’s Peter Walker receiving a nomination for musical director of the year for a small or medium market. That award went to Paul Ferguson of Belleville’s Cool 100.1 FM.
