ACMA Song of the Year – Hello Patio! What a huge honour it is to have won this award! Thank you so much to Deric Ruttan who suggested lunch on the patio the day that we wrote this song together. Thank you to everyone who loves this song as much as we do and voted for it. A very special thank you to the ACMA and to our team at Royalty Records. We wish we could have been there to accept the award, we heard it was an incredible show. Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners! – Stacie Roper

Hey Romeo releases their new album I Got This on September 9th, which includes the first single “Won’t Be Over You”. Hey Romeo have delivered a record that, as lead vocalist Stacie Roper sings on the title track, will literally “turn your day around.”

Featuring good time, party tunes like “Hello Patio,” and introspective offerings such as “Won’t Be Over You,” I Got This is as refreshing as a cold drink on a blazing hot day. When it comes to spreading sunshine, Stacie Roper, keyboardist Rob Shapiro and guitarist Darren Gusnowsky put it themselves, I Got This.


1. Hello Patio
2. Two Hearts and a Radio

The weather is warming up and patios are on the minds of Canadians…here’s a sizzling new single to get them in the mood…

The lineup of artists for Big Hearts for Big Kids Concert Fundraiser benefiting the Sunrise House has just been released!

The Jeffersons, Sean Hogan, Wyatt and Tenille.

“I am so excited to have this event back in our community supporting the GPYESS,” says Event Organizer and Founder, Tenille, “And I can’t wait for everyone to hear the entertainment coming!”

“My favorite part of this event is the way that people come together with their Big Hearts to help youth at risk of homelessness. Three years ago I was inspired to start this formal concert fundraiser in honour of the Sunrise House/Grande Prairie Youth Emergency Shelter after hearing about the positive difference they make in our community and how many youth right here at home turn to it.”

Big Hearts For Big Kids is a spectacular evening of country music and entertainment on Saturday February 23rd, 2013 at the TEC Centre. This 600 ticket event will feature the musical talents of Canadian Country Music Award Winning Artists in two intimate, personal Songwriter’s Circles followed by headliner Deric Ruttan. The evening will involve appetizers, raffle items, a silent auction, and live auction in an intimate setting with amazing artists!

Headline Sponsors this year include Caron Measurement and Controls and Canadian Tire.

Over the past 3 years, the event has raised over $194,000 thanks to Grande Prairie’s incredible support. The Grande Prairie Youth Emergency Shelter has been able to help more families in need of assistance as a result of the growing awareness.

Tickets go on sale Monday, January 14th at the Crystal Centre Box office.
Please call (780) 538-0387 or purchase online www.crystalcentre.com.
