The new year has started for Stettler’s local band Domino on a high note as they bagged the ‘Group of the Year’ award at the 2016 Association of Country Music in Alberta (ACMA) on Sunday evening, Jan. 22 at the Sheraton in Red Deer.

“We had a very exciting weekend at the ACMA awards in Red Deer,” Luanne Carl, who is on bass and vocals said. “There were seminars and workshops, which were so great and informative.”

Domino was also part of the Songwriters’ Round on Saturday night, Jan. 21 at Billy Bob’s, and at Fan Fest on Sunday at the Bower Mall in Red Deer.

“And before we knew, it was time to get all dressed up and head to the awards show at the Sheraton,” Carl said. “We are absolutely thrilled to be named the 2016 Group of the Year! To win this award two years in a row, and being voted on by our peers is absolutely amazing.”

Carl said that the band couldn’t express the amount of gratitude they felt in their hearts.

“We can’t thank them enough for this vote, and we are so excited to see where 2017 will take us, so far it has started off pretty incredibly,” Carl said. “We are looking forward to getting back in to the studio, and start recording new music!”

Domino is planning on more writing with other artists this year.

“We’re planning on some collaboration with other artists and can’t wait to get more music out,” Carl added. “It’s always very exciting to make new music, and share it with our fans.”

The band is looking forward this year to releasing more music to the radio, and are excited to get out and tour more of Canada.

“We’re hoping to get out to as many shows as we can this year,” Carl said. “We will also be heading out to Saskatoon in September for the CCMA awards this year. Here’s to 2017 being even better than 2016.”
