Country singer Charlie Major to headline Spruce Grove’s 2022 Canada Day Celebration
A Canadian country music legend will be the headliner at this year’s Spruce Grove Canada Day Celebration in Jubilee Park on July 1.
Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductee and multi-Juno award winning musician Charlie Major will perform on the Canada Day Mainstage from 9:30 to 11 p.m. He will be joined by opening acts Caleb Hart from Grande Prairie, Alta., and The Brasstastics from Edmonton.
Rising to the forefront of the Canadian music scene in the early to mid-nineties, Charlie became the first Canadian artist in history to score six #1 hits at radio off of his debut album. Nine more chart topping hits would follow, and Charlie would crisscross the world headlining tours and connecting with his fans at fairs and festivals.
Over two decades later, Charlie is as successful as ever. He headlines his own tours and has sold nearly half a million records in Canada alone, and has won three Juno Awards and seven CCMAs, but you wouldn’t know it to meet him, and he would not tell you. He wears the cloak of humility, just like the hardworking folks that he represents in his music.
The Mainstage entertainment will begin with two opening acts, sponsored by the Horizon Stagelighters. The evening will kick off with a performance by reggae and hip-hop artist Caleb Hart, who has a desire to reach as many people as possible with a message of hope, unity, and love. Following Caleb, Edmonton’s premier brass party band The Brasstastics will take the stage to serve up brass band originals as well as some hot throwbacks.
After Charlie’s performance wraps up at 11 p.m., the Canada Day Celebration will conclude with a fireworks display. For more information on the celebration, visit www.sprucegrove.org/celebrate.
