How We Started

In February 1997 a group of dedicated individuals met in Halifax, Nova Scotia to discuss how to honor performers and others who had made major contributions to the country music industry in Nova Scotia. From the efforts of this group, the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame had its beginning. The first performers to be inducted into the Hall of Fame were Hank Snow and Wilf Carter. Presently we have 42 individuals and groups inducted into the Hall of Fame, four of whom are honorary members. Each year we induct new members to our Hall of Fame.
