Beginning June 14 through to 11:59 p.m. ET on June 28, country fans can watch all studio sessions and vote at https://topcountry.siriusxm.ca for their favourite performers once daily.

Once voting is complete, the top three artists will emerge as SiriusXM Top of the Country finalists and be featured during Country Music Week 2021, happening later this fall in London, ON. The winner will also receive the $25,000 grand prize, plus participation in a SOCAN songwriting camp.
