Show broadcast live September 12 in Canada.

For the sixth time, Orange Record singer/songwriter Paul Brandt will host the Canadian Country Music Awards. The 2005 CCMA Awards will be held at the Pengrowth Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta September 12. The show will be broadcast live nationally in Canada by CBC Television with a repeat showing on CMT

"It is an incredibly special year to be hosting the Canadian Country Music Awards" says Brandt. "It's Alberta's Centennial year. This is a homecoming; it's a birthday bash; and being in the heart of cowboy country, it's going to be a big 'ol hoedown."
