MOSKALUKE TO PERFORM AT THE 2019 TIM HORTON’S NHL HERITAGE CLASSIC IN REGINA ON OCTOBER 26 TH
Toronto, ON (October 18, 2019) – Platinum-selling, award-winning country star Jess
Moskaluke unveils her new single “Country Girls”, available today via MDM Recordings
Inc./Universal Music Canada. A “country girl” at heart, having spent her years growing up in
small-town Saskatchewan, Moskaluke headed south to Nashville to co-write the track with
songwriter Emily Shackleton and her long-time producer and collaborator Corey Crowder. The
rhythmic dazzler features Moskaluke’s signature soaring vocals layered with delicate harmonies,
twangy banjo and an impossibly hooky chorus, resulting in a track dripping in modernity while
honouring traditional country roots.
An internationally celebrated artist, Moskaluke recently returned from a trip to Australia where
she performed at the C2C Country to Country Festival – joining Tim McGraw, Kelsea Ballerini,
Midland, Blanco Brown and more for the two-day event which took place in Sydney and
Brisbane for over 20,000 fans. While at the festival, Moskaluke was presented with her third
GOLD Award for her single “Take Me Home”, for which she also took home a SOCAN Award
Moskaluke, a four-time 2019 CCMA Award nominee, wowed the crowd and TV audience
during the national broadcast of the CCMA Awards at Calgary’s Saddledome, performing
alongside Aaron Pritchett and CCMA Hall of Fame inductee and label mate Charlie Major.
Earlier this year, she was up for the 2019 JUNO Award for Country Album of the Year, a trophy
she took home in 2017 for her EP “Kiss Me Quiet”. Highly decorated, Moskaluke has been
crowned a three-time consecutive CCMA Award winner for “Female Artist of the Year” and
took home the 2018 CCMA Award for “Album of the Year”.
Radiating sonic versatility, Moskaluke continues to impress the country music world with her
infectious and story driven songs, reaching critical acclaim and crushing career milestones along
the way. In 2017, she was the first Canadian female country artist since 2008 to have a song in
the Top 5 with the upbeat track “Drive Me Away”, and she achieved platinum-selling status for
her smash hit “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes” – the only Canadian female country artist to do so
since Shania Twain. In addition to “Take Me Home”, she has been awarded Gold-certification
for her Top 10 hits “Kiss Me Quiet” and “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”, along with a nod for her
feature on Paul Brandt’s “I’m An Open Road”. Next up for Moskaluke is a performance at the
2019 Tim Horton’s NHL Heritage Classic, which features an all Saskatchewan line-up and takes
place at Regina’s Mosaic Stadium on October 26 th .
