In 1971 The Stampeders won Juno Awards in the categories of 'Best Group,' 'Best Single,' 'Best Producer' and 'Best Composer' for their platinum single, SWEET CITY WOMAN. Their other hits include CARRY ME, DEVIL YOU, WILD EYES, OH MY LADY, THEN CAME THE WHITE MAN, MINSTREL GYPSY, PLAYING IN THE BAND, HIT THE ROAD JACK, NEW ORLEANS, MONDAY MORNING CHOO CHOOand KEEP MERUNNING WILD, to name just a few.
Hailing from Calgary Alberta, the Stampeders went on to become a household name between 1971 and 1976, with four songs reaching Top-30 in the U.S and ten Top-5 singles in Canada. They recorded nine albums, many achieving gold and platinum status. SWEET CITY WOMAN has since become a classic and a standard in the world of pop music. In a recent poll, it was voted one of the Top-10 most-recognizable songs of the 70's.
In 1972, the band was awarded Holland's prestigious 'EDISON AWARD’ along with RY COODER and CARL WILSON of THE BEACH BOYS, during a televised award show with an estimated audience of over 30-million viewers throughout Europe. In 1991, THE STAMPEDERS had the honour of being inducted into the Alberta Recording Association's "Hall of Fame," and in 1994, they were inducted into the CJAY 92 Calgary Rock Hall Of Fame. Also, in 1994, RICH DODSON was inducted into the SOCAN Hall of Fame for his compositions, SWEET CITY WOMAN and CARRY ME along with KIM BERLY for his composition OH MY LADY. The Stampeders were also inducted into the SOCAN 'Hall Of Fame' and received a SOCAN Special Lifetime Achievement award at Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto in 2011.
