Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame – Bev Munro

Bev Munro was part and parcel of the enterprising spirit that led CFCW to be the success it continues to be.

When you’re heading south down QEII to the soon to be opened Century Mile you’ll notice a reminder of the halcyon days of thoroughbred breeding and racing in Alberta the CFCW Farm sign just north of what used to be Esquire and the remnants of Paddockhurst.
