The Canadian Country Music Association has announced today that musician Terri Clark will be this year's Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductee.
Clark, a 19-time CCMA Award and three-time Juno Award winner, will be honoured at the 2018 CCMA Awards on Sunday, Sept. 9, in Hamilton, Ont.
"It is such an honour to be inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame," Clark said, in a press release. "Being celebrated as one of Canada's most influential country musicians is a recognition I do not take lightly and one I will forever be proud of. I am deeply grateful to everyone who has been on this journey with me, especially my fans who I had the opportunity to celebrate with today."
Clark first began making music in her hometown of Medicine Hat, Alta. in the early '90s, and released her debut, self-titled album in 1995. Since then, Clark has sold over five million albums worldwide, and she later became the first female Canadian member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Other Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame inductees include Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Rita MacNeil and last year's inductee, Paul Brandt.
In addition to Clark's induction, CFCW Radio's Jackie Rae Greening will also be honoured as a 2018 builder inductee to the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
