PRAIRIE OYSTER was officially inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in September 2008 at Canadian Country Music Association ceremonies in Winnipeg. They embarked on a “Hall of Fame Tour” to a number of western Canadian communities bringing with them their unique sound and a concert filled with all of their hit tunes that stretch back over three decades.

The band covers more bases than baseball, incorporating traditional country, western, swing, folk, bluegrass, a hint of jazz, blues, and even some gospel flavours, with a graceful ease.  PRAIRIE OYSTER originally formed in 1975 as a trio consisting of lead singer/bassist Russell de Carle, guitarist Keith Glass, and steel guitar player Denis Delorme, performing on television and playing live shows but never recording. In the early eighties they took on fiddle player John P. Allen and keyboardist/songwriter Joan Besen.  It took until the early nineties to finally be ‘discovered’ by Nashville and the resulting first album Different Kind Of Fire (RCA 1990), took them on a journey which has earned them hit singles and platinum records and a tally of six Juno Awards, eleven Canadian Country Music Awards and fourteen RPM Big Country Awards
