The winners were announced on October 3 at the Seneca Niagara Hotel & Casino in Niagara Falls, New York.

Sirensong has already brought in several nominations, including the Western Canadian Music Awards, the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards, and the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. It also earned the group a trophy from the Indian Summer Music Awards on September 12.

Manitoba artists received five nominations for the NAMMYS this year. Eagle & Hawk lead the way with two nods for Group of the Year and for Best Rock Recording. Country crooner Ray St. Germain was up for Best Country Recording for his latest release, Life Ain’t Hard. Team Rezofficial, which has members in Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia, was nominated for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Recording for The World & Everything in It.
