distinguished visiting artist in Country Music

Imagine a bridge between up-and-coming creative professionals and the country music industry—a bridge that leads to life-changing opportunities by allowing aspiring country singers, musicians, producers and other industry professionals to learn from the most celebrated names in their field.

MacEwan University is building that bridge through the Distinguished Visiting Artist in Country Music initiative. Each distinguished artist will take part in short- or long-term campus visits to engage in education and mentorship activities including lectures, master classes, performances and public presentations.
