When Tonya Kennedy was a little girl, she dreamed that she would become a Canadian country singing sensation. And when she grew up, she got a good old-fashioned regular day job — it surely wasn’t the “dream job” of being a singer, but it did pay the bills. She didn’t stop singing, though. She worked at her day job and continued to sing whenever and wherever she could. She worked hard, and today, many years later, she is standing on the edge of that dream becoming a reality. Kennedy is currently ranked in the Top 10 Canadian country female artists on country radio. In 2012, her most recent and most successful song on radio to date, “Super Girl” received airplay across Canada, and in Australia, Japan, Europe and the United States, and peaked in the Top 50 songs on Canadian country radio throughout the summer. In November 2012, Tonya released her most recent single, “Did I Just Say What I Just Said.” Kennedy has received East Coast Music Award nominations for 2013 Country Recording Of The Year, 2011 Country Recording of the Year and 2011 Rising Star of the Year.
