Barenaked Children Award

(PR) Multi-platinum recording artist Barenaked Ladies received great news today as they were sailing the high seas on their annual "Ships & Dip" cruise. The band, who released their debut original children's album Snacktime early last year, was nominated for a 2009 Juno Award in the category of "Children's Album of the Year."

The nomination is a fantastic way for BNL to kick off the new year, as they begin their celebration of 20 years together as a band.

Snacktime, which was produced and mixed by Michael Phillip Wojewoda (who also worked with the band on their debut Gordon), is composed of 24 tracks, including such titles as "Pollywog in Bog," "Popcorn" and "Here Come The Geese." With 11 children ranging from three months to 12 years old among them, the band was never at a lack of inspiration or imagination. Additionally, the title track includes guest appearances from celebrities/musicians like Geddy Lee, Lyle Lovett, Jason Priestly, Sarah McLachlan, Gordon Lightfoot and more.

BNL is currently in the midst of "Ships & Dip V" -- the third time BNL has cruised with their beloved fans. The Norwegian Jewel left on February 1 and is sailing to Cozumel, Mexico and Norwegian Cruise Line's private island Great Stirrup Cay, returning this Friday, February 6. Additional entertainment this year includes Kids In The Hall alumni Dave Foley and Kevin McDonald, Great Big Sea, The Weakerthans, Gaelic Storm, Butterfly Boucher, The New Odds, Brothers Creeggan, Luke Doucet, Mike Evin, Christine Fellows, Boothby Graffoe, Melissa McClelland, Sloan, The Mountain Goats and Vanity Project.

The 2009 JUNO Awards broadcast on CTV, Sunday March 29th at the General Motors Place, featuring award presentations and performances.
