Do you know someone who deserves recognition for their outstanding support of country music in the Ottawa Valley? The Ralph Carlson Memorial Award was created by the Hall of Fame to honour such individuals with the presentation of a plaque at the Annual Awards Show.

The person selected for this award:
  • must be a resident of the Ottawa Valley;

  • must not meet the criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame;

  • must not make their living from country music or benefit financially from their involvement with country music; and

  • must have a history of continued support for a significant period of time (rather than a single event or milestone) through either promotion, fundraising, volunteering, organization or as a fan.

To date, recipients of this award have included:

  • Thomas & Kay Cavanagh (2006)
  • Doreen Goudy (2007)
  • Victor Lauren (2010)
  • Donna Lee Hamilton (2015)
