CM United also sponsors the longest-running Christian songwriting contest in existence, ChristianSongwriting.com, which is in its 16th year.
Being named ChristianTalentContest.com's artist of the year is the most recent in a series of accomplishments for St.Cyr. His current single, "In My Lifetime," has garnered international attention and won the singer/songwriter first place in the Nashville-based Unsigned Only competition, which is judged by artists such as Bart Millard from Mercy Me, David Crowder and Aaron Schust. St.Cyr also was named the 2017 Nashville Rising Star winning songwriter and is currently touring across North America.
Ben Calhoun, frontman for Citizen Way, and Micah Kuiper, guitarist for Hawk Nelson, co-produced St.Cyr's current single. A resident of Niverville, Manitoba, St.Cyr and his wife, Heather, have three children, Aidan, Liam and Willa.
Winning the competition earns St.Cyr numerous prizes and opportunities valued at more than $12,000, including having two songs released to radio internationally by A-Sides Radio Promotion ($6400 value), a complete PR package by INOV8 PR ($1500 value) and an Artist Development Package by McLaughlin Music Group ($4500 value).
