Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame

Bob, Julie, Jennifer Johnston

Awards Show

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.
