Living Legends

The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries.

[Music: “Any Man Of Mine” – Twain — establish and under]

Canada recently honored five Country music Legends with stamps – Hank Snow, Tommy Hunter,
Shania Twain, K-D Lang and Renee Martel. Four of them are still living; only Snow has
passed away.

In fact, Canada Post says Twain, Hunter, Lang and Martel approved the designs for their
stamps. The Snow stamp was approved by his son. The postal agency also claims the designs
reflect the musical styles of each artist.

It’s also interesting that the quantities of stamps and collectible being produced for
each artist are different: More stamps and commemorative envelopes were printed for
Shania Twain than the other artists…. The fewest for Renee Martel.

There is also what’s called a “souvenir sheet” with all five stamp designs…. And framed
art and collectibles for four of the artists – but not Twain.
