Canada Post plans to unveil a commemorative stamp today that pays tribute to country music legend Hank Snow.

Snow was from Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

The ceremony takes place at the Hank Snow Home Town Museum in Liverpool.

The stamp will be issued on July 31 as part of a series of stamps featuring Canadian country performers.

Snow died in 1999 at his home in Nashville. He was 85. This year marks the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Snow left behind a legacy as one of the most prolific recording artists in country music history.

He recorded more than 800 songs during his career which spanned about 50 years, said Kyle Young, executive director of the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

Snow was perhaps best known for his hit, "I'm Movin' On". It was the top country song of 1950.
