Canadian Country music legend George Fox received an incredible honour this weekend in Calgary. 

He was officially inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, something many country artists will only ever dream about. 

During his decades-long career the former Cochrane resident released 10 albums, five of which were certified gold.

He has won a long-list of CCMA awards and he's also won three Junos for male country vocalist of the year.

Fox says he's feeling a lot of emotions right now. "A lot of different feelings as you can imagine, but you know the feeling, 'Hey, I got nothing to prove now'. It's just like you know when you start out you know you've got to work super hard and you got to keep the story going high undefined expectations, whatever you want to call it, but at this stage, you sort of feel like you've accomplished what you wanted to do. It's a great feeling to be acknowledged by so many great people in the CCMA. It's a good one."

"The Saddledome, I have so many great memories of walking into the Saddledome. We opened for Randy Travis at the Saddledome at the very beginning, I remember walking in those doors, my knees were knocking I was so nervous. But many, many good friends, we had a big family reunion just this morning. I'm so glad I was inducted here in Calgary because it's so close to family." says Fox. 

The former Cochranite, who now lives in Ontario, couldn't come to Calgary without a stop in his old hometown. 

"We had to fit a trip back into our old ranch and everything, so we were just ripping and running during this busy weekend, but we did take time to get out to good old Cochrane."
