Richard and George Canyon have been awarded the “Producer of the Year” prize at the canadian Country Music Awards for their work on George’s latest album, “Better Be Home Soon.” The technical awards were handed out Saturday in Toronto at a luncheon honoring nominees in multiple categories. The awards show itself will be broadcast live Monday night, September 12, and Richard and George will be performing George’s new single, “When Love Is All You’ve Got.”

Richard says, “I’m really thrilled to have won Producer of the Year with my buddy, George. This album, like the one before, was a labor of love for all of us, and I know I speak for George when I say I share this with the musicians who played on it, and Chip Matthews, who engineered it. I feel like an honorary Canadian today. Beauty, eh????”

    Hey Richard. Congratulations!
    First time I write. Fan of you since I was 21 years old. Now it is 22 years later and I still am. I heard “Satisfied” on the radio and your voice catched me. I had to find out who you were and where you came from. And that is the other side of the world. You come to The Netherlands some day? I want to go to your concert live.
    How else can I get a signed cd from you?

    Kudos Richard! I will never forget the first time I saw you in concert in 1990. I was 13 years old and it was your Repeat Offender tour. Then I remember coming to see your Rush in Rush Out tour. It would be so cool if you came back to NS! I’m not a geeky teenager anymore! LOL
