The award was handed out this past Saturday at a gala dinner at the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina.
“Winning this Juno is amazing. I am so proud to be included in such great company with the other nominees. I share this with all the people that made A NATURAL FACT so special, especially my producer Rob Szabo. This was a team effort. I also want to thank Mel Brown, who continues to inspire me.” Strongman said.
