Jordan St. Cyr is celebrating while on tour after hearing that he won the Juno award in the category of Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album. 

This was the first time St. Cyr was nominated for a Juno award.

"Thank you to everyone involved in the making of this album," says St. Cyr on Facebook. "What a privilege to be a part of such an amazing team."

Other nominees in the Christian category were Dan Bremnes, Love & the Outcome, Daniel Ojo, and Tehillah Worship. 

"To be able to write, record, and release songs of faith, ones that encourage our hearts to know we don’t walk this road alone, is everything! I’m grateful to God every day that this is what I get to do."

St. Cyr is currently on the Build a Boat tour across the U.S.A. with Colton Dixon and Apollo LTD, which meant he was unable to attend the televised event. The Manitoba-born singer has new music coming out later this year.

During the Canadian Christian GCM Covenant Awards show last year St. Cyr took home six awards, including Album of the Year

The Juno Awards 2023 will air on T.V. on Monday, March 13 at 7:00 p.m. They were announced live on March 11.
