Edmonton-based country music artist Alee took home the Female Artist of the Year award.

She said it’s an incredible honour to receive the award.

“As an artist you work so hard putting your heart and soul into things and you don’t always know if it’s going to be loved by people and I have received nothing but love from the industry and fans,” she said.

Alee also won Album of the Year award for Bad Habit Sunday.

Dan Davidson was named Male Artist of the Year, Fan’s Choice, Single and Song of the Year for Barn Burner.

The Dungarees received three awards: Group/Duo, Rising Star and Video of the Year for Anywhere With You.

The Musician of the Year award went to Mitch Jay, and the Horizon Youth Award went to Sydney Mae.

Ian Tyson was inducted into the 2017 ACMA Hall of Fame.

Although several Central Albertans were nominated, they did not take home any awards.

Performances by Tyson, Blake Reid, Jamie Woodfin, Mikaila Cooper, The Orchard kept about 300 people in the room entertained.
