Toronto, ON (June 22, 2022) – The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) is pleased to announce Chad Kroeger and Ryan Peake of Nickelback, one of Canada’s most successful rock bands, along with music icon Corey Hart as the latest round of performers to be added to its star-studded Gala taking place on Saturday, September 24 at Toronto’s Massey Hall, with presenting partner The El Mocambo.
On the heels of his upcoming “Stranger Things” Netflix concert appearance, Corey Hart will join diamond certified rockers Kroeger and Peake who have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide as part of Nickelback, in tribute performances to Inductees Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance.
“It goes without saying that Bryan and Jim have written and continue to write songs that capture some of our best memories. And to create songs that feel timeless is one of the best achievements you can hope for as a songwriter. We are extremely honoured to celebrate them and their songs at this year’s ceremony.” – Nickelback
Hart is planning an intimate piano solo performance to present his handpicked song choices to honour Adams and Vallance. “The Adams / Vallance repertoire has earned a rich and storied place in Canadian music history. It is with great humility and pride that I will take the stage at Massey Hall to commemorate these two titans of song” – Corey Hart
2022 will mark the highly anticipated return of the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony that will also honour Inductee Alanis Morissette; with previously announced performers including multiplatinum singer-songwriter and seven-time JUNO winner Serena Ryder; four-time JUNO-winning and GRAMMY-nominated artist Jessie Reyez; and Montreal’s newly minted multi-JUNO Award winner Charlotte Cardin.
Stay tuned for more Inductees, performers and special guest announcements in the coming weeks.

ABOUT CANADIAN SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME
The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) honours and celebrates Canadian songwriters and those who’ve dedicated their lives to the legacy of music; and works to educate the public about these achievements. National and non-profit, the CSHF is guided by its own Board of Directors, who comprise both Anglophone and Francophone music creators and publishers, as well as representation from the record industry. In December of 2011, SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) acquired the CSHF. The Hall of Fame’s mandate aligns with SOCAN’s objectives as a songwriter and publisher membership-based organization. The CSHF continues to be run as a separate organization. www.cshf.ca
