Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame
George was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in September of 2022
Hailing from Cochrane, AB, George Fox began his music career in 1988 when his live show recordings found their way into the hands of a Warner Music Canada representative. Releasing his debut single, “Angelina,” to critical acclaim that year, Fox secured a Top 10 debut and watched his career take off. One short year later, Fox took home the CCMA Award title of Vista Rising Star (1989), Male Vocalist of the Year (1990,1991,1993). Fox’s excellence was also celebrated by the JUNO Awards with him being named Country Male Vocalist of the Year for three consecutive years (1989-1991).
Earning nine RPM Big Country Awards (5x Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Composer of the Year, Country Artist of the Year), Fox has released 10 albums, five of which reached gold status, hosted the CCMA Awards for multiple years (1991-1994) and appeared in countless television specials alongside celebrated artists such as Terri Clark, Rita McNeil, Anne Murray, Garth Brooks and Shania Twain. Fox continues to tour and spends time on his farm with his wife and daughters in southern Ontario.
In 1995 George was honoured by his hometown of Cochrane, Alberta with the naming of a local roadway ‘George Fox Trail’.
