MUSIC: Country band with Cloverdale Rodeo connection needs votes in Canadian contest

Me and Mae wants to be at music awards event in September

The band Me and Mae.

For country band Me and Mae, provincial bragging rights are on the line as part of a current music contest.

Until tomorrow (Friday, June 17), fans can vote for the band to represent the B.C. Country Music Association at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards event, which this year is Sept. 11 in London, Ont.

CLICK HERE to vote.

The winner will be flown to Toronto to participate and will be featured on the main stage of this summer’s major outdoor country music festivals.

Me and Mae were in the provincial segment of the BCCMA Spotlight Performance Contest put on by the CCMAs. They performed at the semi-finals at the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair last month against four other finalists in front of a panel of judges; they made the top three along with Ben Klick and Shylo Sharity.

Then, in province-wide fan voting for five days, Me and Mae topped the other two acts.

Clyde Hill, manager of Me and Mae, said he feels good about his band’s chances about winning it all.

“We will be going up against every province,” Hill said of the CCMA’s letter to him indicating that Mea and Mae is among the BCCMA contestants.

Hill notes that the band’s second album is nearly ready to be released. The first single, “Feel Good Feelin’,” is off to a promising start that should help the band in the voting.
