The stand-out at this year’s East Coast Music Awards, Jimmy stole the show by taking home three Awards during the 2002 ceremony. He won Single of the Year for “Followed Her Around” and the prestigious SOCAN Songwriter of the Year award (shared with co-writer Gordie Sampson) for the same song. He also received the ECMA award for Country Artist of the Year.
The hometown recognition is rewarding, and to further validate Rankin’s successful return to fore of the music scene, he is nominated for a 2002 Juno Award for Best Country Artist, while Song Dog got the nod for Best Engineered recording.
While often slotted in the country category, ultimately, there is no denying Jimmy’s crossover appeal as evidenced by his recent Canadian Radio Music Award (CRMA) for Best New Solo Artist - Adult Contemporary. The CRMAs honour Canada’s hottest up-and-coming music artists as chosen by radio broadcasters.
Equally compelling is Jimmy Rankin’s live show. Spanning the course of five months, Jimmy’s Canadian tour has consistently met with great audiences and brilliant reviews. In reviewing Jimmy’s Peterborough concert, Jeff Macklin writes “…a night of music which again and again bore out the fact that he is one of the best song-writers in the country… musically on-fire.” Jimmy has performed in all major markets and many smaller ones in the East, Ontario, and most recently the West.
