(Nashville, June 29, 2011) It’s become somewhat of a tradition for Michelle to celebrate Canada Day and her July 1st birthday with a free performance somewhere in her native land.

This Friday, Michelle headlines a free outdoor concert at Lede Park in Leduc, Alberta, a celebration of particular significance to Michelle not only because it’s Canada Day, but also because it’s her 50th birthday.

It’s an exciting time for Michelle. The Canadian Country Music Association recently announced she will be this year’s Artist inductee into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Michelle is thrilled to be celebrating this honor, Canada’s 144th birthday, and her 50th with her July 1st concert in Leduc.
