Juno Nominations Salute Neil Young and Others

February 17, 2006

Canada's Juno Awards have announced nominees for the annual prizes, which will be distributed in Halifax, NS on April 2. Although led by rockers Nickelback (I'll give the lead singer a dollar if his voice is not stripped in 5 years), jazz-centric Diana Krall and Michael Buble came in right behind. Neil Young is up for 3 awards (Songwriter of the Year, Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Producer of the Year). Martha Wainwright competes for New Artist of the Year.

Nominees for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Solo are:
Corb Lund - Hair in My Eyes Like a Highland Steer
Harry Manx - Mantras for Madmen
Ian Tyson - Songs from the Gravel Road
Lynn Miles - Love Sweet Love
Yves Lambert - Recidive

Elliott Brood - Ambassador
