Posted on June 9, 2010
Ray St. Germain will be inducted to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Honour in a special induction ceremony on Friday, September 10th in Edmonton. The announcement was made by the Canadian Country Music Association on June 8 in Toronto.
“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!” said Jill Snell-de Cartier, Chair of the Hall of Honour Electors Committee.“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.”
Donna & Leroy Anderson, Willie P. Bennett, Marie Bottrell, Eddie Eastman, Don Harron, Fred McKenna, Wayne Rostad, Joyce Smith and Hal & Ginger Willis will also be inducted on September 10th.
Ray is an award winning recording artist and stage show performer/producer. He recently wrote his autobiography "I Wanted to be Elvis, so What was I doing in Moose Jaw?" Ray has plans to release a new album this year, entitled "We All Make Mistakes Sometimes.”
Ray has been seen nationally on CBC, Global, APTN and CKY as a performer, television producer/singer/host. Ray was also the radio host/program manager at NCI FM.
