Me And Mae are on the front lines of Country, battling to bring Vancouver on the map for Country artists. Having a slew of awards, radio play, and tons of tours under their belt, the band is one of Vancouver's top acts that are emerging on the festival scene. We had a quick chat with Shawn from the band about what Country means to them.
