So honoured and grateful to have even been recognized! I co-wrote on every song on this album, this means even more because of that. Won’t forget this one – Chris Buck

It’s an honour to get to share in the creative processes and recorded journeys of the artists and bands I produce. They include me in their musical vision and I will always value that bond of trust and do my best for everyone I work with. More than winning an award like a CCMA or BCCMA is the friendships and the community that growth that comes from collectively celebrating this amazing music business. – Jeff Johnson

ABOUT ROBYN & RYLEIGH
R&R, as their friends and family lovingly tag them, are true Canadian country girls in daily life, growing up in a serene setting on the family property in B.C.’s Fraser Valley. When not on a stage or in a recording studio, Robyn can be found tinkering on her own car, while Ryleigh loves quadding, and once beat some farm boys in a tractor race at a fair after one of their gigs.
This sister duo is also very passionate about staying fit, eating healthy nourishing foods and sharing their love for health and fitness.
Robyn and Ryleigh are authentic country girls, singing about fast cars, boys, and hot summer nights. Part mud, part makeup, part glamorous, part funny. The perfect recipe for a couple of girls you’d like to get to know better.
The BCCMA is an organization with the focus to promote, foster and encourage the development and public appreciation of, and interest in, the British Columbia Country Music Community.
