Well before he won the 2016 Saskatchewan Country Music Association Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year award and Male Vocalist of the Year award, Alex Runions was widely considered as an artist to keep an eye on in Canada’s country music scene. With more than a decade of memorable live performances at some of the most iconic venues in the country, including Big Valley Jamboree, the Grey Cup, and the CCMA Awards Week Songwriters’ Series, it’s easy to see why Runions’ hometown of Kipling, Saskatchewan raised a billboard in his honour.
In addition to charting singles such as "Passenger Seat", "South of the City", “FM Dial” and "Little Bit of Sunshine", Runions’ collaboration track "Just Watch Me" with Dean Kush and JJ Voss cemented the Saskatchewan-born artist’s status as a rising star on an international level, serving as the cornerstone to a fundraising campaign for the Canadian Cancer Society. Following the success of his latest single, "Heartland" featuring Erin Hill, Runions' stock continues to rise as he tours and performs live throughout the country. - Daniel Bell
