Canadian Music Week is pleased to announce the winners of the 17th annual Canadian Radio Music Awards¸which took place tonight at Toronto’s Phoenix Concert Theatre.

Burlington’s Walk Off The Earth emerged as the evening’s big winners; taking home an impressive four awards out of their five total nominations, including Best New Group or Solo Artist (Hot AC), Song of the Year, and Fan’s Choice.

The awards ceremony featured special performances by Walk off the Earth, Down With Webster, Trevor Guthrie, Head of the Herd, Tyler Shaw, and Brett Kissel.
