He released his latest album, Point of View, last year.

Henderson, who now resides in Regina, also performed during the night, with a quarantine version of his song Didn’t Want my Sweater Back.

Micah Walbaum of Forget was announced as the winner of the SCMA’s Youth Development Bursary.

The Happy Nun Café in Forget was selected as the top music venue, thanks to its popularity for concerts.

Also among the winners was Weyburn’s Tenille Arts, who was named the top Female Artist of the Year. She also shared the songwriter award with Alex Kline and Allison Veitz for the song Somebody Like That.

Arts won the Estevan Junior Idol (now Estevan Sings Junior) contest in 2006.

Former Estevan resident Cal Gratton was named the top music director for a secondary market for his work in Melfort.

The SCMAs had to be awarded digitally this year, with performances and award announcements happening through a video.
