The Poverty Plainsmen were the first act to play in Calgary's McMahon Stadium.

The Poverty Plainsmen were one of the many featured artists at Canada's most successful farm relief concerts hosted in Edmonton's Sky Reach Center and Calgary's Saddledome. The "Say Hay" concerts raised over one million dollars to help the western farmers get hay to their herds of livestock across the prairies. They not only performed their own music, but were also on board as one of the house bands backing several of Canada's top stars.
