Dion, Hip lead Juno noms

MONTREAL — Celine Dion and rock band the Tragically Hip have topped the nominations for the Juno Awards, which recognize achievement in Canadian recorded music.

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences said Wednesday that Dion and the Tragically Hip each earned six nominations, followed closely by Bryan Adams with four.

Cape Breton fiddler Ashley MacIssac, blues guitarist Jeff Healey, rock diva Amanda Marshall, Alanis Morissette and L’Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal each garnered three noms.

Nominees for album of the year include Adams’ “18 Till I Die,” Dion’s “Falling Into You,” Marshall’s self-named debut, MacIssac’s “Hi, How Are You Today?” and the Tragically Hip’s “Trouble at the Henhouse.” With the excep-tion of Adams, the same performers are nominated for single of the year, up against Morissette’s monster hit “Ironic.” Morisette also is nominated for songwriter of the year, along with Adams, the Tragically Hip, Dean McTaggart and Amy Sky.

Marshall and Dion will battle for top female vocalist with Deborah Cox, Lara Fabian and Alannah Myles giving them a run for the money. In the male vocalist category, aging rockers Neil Young and Adams face Paul Brandt, Corey Hart and John McDermott.

The Junos will be presented March 9 in a gala to be broadcast on CBC.
