Jaffray raised country star Dean Brody has won male artist of the year for the second consecutive year.

The 38-year-old had seven nominations in the Canadian Country Music Association awards, held on the weekend.

Brody was born in Smithers, then his family moved to Jaffray. He has now moved east, currently living on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.

Brody said it still doesn't seem real.

"A couple of years ago I was still working at the Sherwood Park Wal-Mart," he said in accepting the award.

"This whole thing still feels like I'm on the peripheral. I have so much respect for the artists in this room."

Gord Bamford, who received the most Canadian Country Music Award nominations this year, walked away from Sunday's show with five awards.
