Doc Walker Takes Home Three CCMAs

Posted on

The Canadian Country Music Awards showcased some of Canada’s biggest country stars at Pengrowth Saddledome on September 8, 2003, including crossover superstar Shania Twain and fan favourite Terri Clarke. Manitoba's own Doc Walker took home three awards from the annual event in Calgary.

Doc Walker was named Independent Group of the Year and their song "Rocket Girl" was named Independent Song of the Year, as well as SOCAN Song of the Year. Drummer Mark Branconnier also landed a spot in the All Star Band, including members from bands of Shania Twain, Terri Clark and Lisa Brokop.

Just to keep the boys from Westbourne, Manitoba busy, they'll be releasing their new album Everyone Aboard on September 9. The band will travel to Edmonton to perform a special CD release event at the Cook County Saloon. CISN-FM (103.9) radio will present the show. The following day, the band will travel back to Calgary and perform a similar event presented by Country 105 Radio at Ranchman's.
