Murray McLaughlan to be inducted to Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame Add to ...

Not for the first time, Murray McLauchlan will sing for his supper. The Scottish-Canadian songster will be inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame on Sept. 9 at London’s Centennial Hall, where the 11-time Juno winner will perform as part of the ceremonial proceedings and will be enshrined along with music mogul Paul Mascioli. Though McLauchlan is generally considered a singer-songwriter in the pop and folk fields, he endeared himself to country music fans with Farmer’s Song, his 1973 love letter to food producers. “Thanks for the meal, here’s a song that is real,” he sang, “from a kid from the city to you.” The man has manners.
