BENNETT, MARIE BOTTRELL, EDDIE EASTMAN, RAY ST. GERMAIN, DON HARRON, FRED McKENNA, WAYNE ROSTAD, JOYCE SMITH and HAL & GINGER WILLIS will be inducted into the HALL at a special ceremony on SEPTEMBER 10th in EDMONTON.
HALL OF HONOUR Electors Committee Chair JILL SNELL-de CARTIER said: “We felt it suitable that in 2010 we would honour ten artists who were pioneers and ground-breakers in our rich country music history as there were so many deserving of this induction – and what a list it is! These visionaries are all legends and treasured CANADIANS – each carved their own path and helped pave the road for the incredible talent we see growing in this flourishing market each year. We look forward to seeing these talented recipients and their families in EDMONTON this year at the HALL OF HONOUR ceremony, sure to be this year’s most moving CCMA highlight. Congratulations to one and all on this remarkable achievement.”
