Oshawa artist wins country music award

Country music award

Oshawa artist Brandon Heard is the winner of the Canadian Country Music Award for best album design for his work on The Boom Chucka Boys’ Ramble. Heard was also nominated in the same category for his work on Chad Brownlee’s The Fighters.

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.
