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????”
