Music•Musique NB (MNB) has unveiled the nominees’ list for the 7th annual Prix MNB Awards. A total of 25 awards will be presented to artists and industry professionals who have made their mark on the NB music scene in the past year.
Tristan Horncastle has received 5 nominations in the following categories, Country Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, SOCAN Song of the Year, Video of the Year and Producer of the Year for his current album “Turnin’ Up A Sundown”.
When you hear a Tristan Horncastle song, whether it’s the Friday night anthem “Recreation Land” or the yearning “You Want”, you’re hearing his life. Tristan is eager to share more of his life on his recently released #1 selling album, Turnin’ Up A Sundown, out on Royalty Records/Sony Music Canada, February 2016.
Recorded at Nashville’s fabled Sound Stage Studio with engineer Julian King (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill) and Producers Aaron Goovin & Bart Butler, Turnin’ Up A Sundown features eight solid cuts laid down with some of Music City’s top musicians, including the title track written by Jason Blaine.
Since releasing his first EP in 2011, the Fredericton, New Brunswick native has shared stages with the likes of Travis Tritt, Dean Brody, Joe Diffie and Leann Rimes. Horncastle’s hard work recently earned a 2016 CCMA nomination for Recording Package of the Year.
The winners will be announced during the Prix MNB Awards evening, taking place Thursday, October 13, at Miramichi’s Carrefour communautaire Beausoleil. The evening will kick off Festival (506), a four-day migrating event which showcases incredible homegrown New Brunswick music.
Tickets for the MNB Awards Show are available at the Carrefour communautaire Beausoleil.
