Centrepointe Theatre

Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame
Awards Show

Gail Gavan

Through the years, as country music has evolved,
we sometimes tend to forget
about the pioneers in the industry who put their
 hearts and souls into making their special brand of music
come alive in the Ottawa Valley.

The Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall Of Fame
 was founded in 1980.
The Hall of Fame inducts new members each year
 to recognize those who,
in a variety of ways, have made significant contributions
to promote country music
in the Ottawa Valley and Canada.
