It has been awhile since one person has dominated the Country music scene, let alone, a young lady from Saskatchewan. The last person to command the charts would of been Shania Twain.
These days there’s a new reigning champion of the charts that has become the most spun artist at Canadian Country Radio for the second year in a row. In August of 2014 Jess achieved gold single status for “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”. As of November 4th, 2016 the single reached platinum status with over 80,000 digital downloads. Jess is the first female country artist to reach gold and platinum status since Shania Twain. To date, Jess’YouTube channel has garnered over 19 million views.
Not bad too shabby for a well grounded, appreciative, 3 time CCMA female vocalist of the year (consecutive), talented MDM Recording artist that is going to dominate the airwaves for years to come.
The Source 620 CKRM was very excited to have proclaimed Jess as the champion of our 2010 Proudly Saskatchewan Showcase! which she acknowledged as one of her major accomplishments and stepping stones on her musical journey. We Can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for Jess. All I know, is that this Saskatchewan lady needs more room on her mantle for all the platinum and gold albums to come.
