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.
Other group awards include Holland's prestigious 'EDISON AWARD’, Alberta Recording Association's 'Hall of Fame', 'Calgary Rock Hall Of Fame' and 'SOCAN Hall of Fame'. 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". To the delight of their fans, the Stampeders reunited in 1992 and continue to tour to this day.
