The Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) has inked a new partnership with the #1 Canadian radio streaming service, iHeartRadio Canada. Confirmed by the CCMA’s dedicated sponsorship team (Feldman Entertainment Partnerships), the driving force behind the partnership was the desire to create a unique experiential fan event in Hamilton, ON, as a part of Country Music Week in September 2018.


Blazing the trail for the new collaboration is the first-annual CCMA Country Run presented by iHeartRadio. The interactive 5K event will see country music fans run alongside some of their favourite artists. With live acoustic performances as its soundtrack, the event will encourage fans to dress up in their wildest country attire while running/walking the trail for a chance to win a long list of prizes.
