Vancouver BC – On September 1, 2017, Canadian country music superstar Aaron Pritchett will be embarking on a cross Canada trip in his prized 1973 VW Van “Gertie.” Along for the ride is Aaron’s partner, Jessie and a professional videographer that will be documenting their epic journey through the mountains and prairies as they make their way to this year’s CCMA’s that take place in Saskatoon on September 10, 2017.
A 2017 Juno nomination under his belt for Country Album of the Year, as well as multiple 2017 CCMA Award nominations, including Male Artist of the Year and Video of the year reflects on the success of his most recent album, “The Score”. Released on August 2, Pritchett’s current single “VW Bus” was the most downloaded single on DMDS and is destined to be a hit song. Written by Clint Drizen, Kristina Kidd, and Sarah Allison Turner, the song is also the inspiration for Aaron’s cross-country journey.
“This trip has always been a bucket list for me,” says Pritchett. “I am incredibly grateful to my team, our fans, and am so excited to connect with Canadians on our way to the CCMA’s. It’s an honour to be recognized in the Male Artist of the Year, and Video of the Year categories and I can’t wait fire up Gertie and get this show on the road!”
