George Fox (born March 23, 1960 in Calgary, Alberta) is a country/western music singer/songwriter raised in Cochrane, Alberta, the son of cattle ranchers Bert and Gert Fox.

His debut single "Angelina" reached No. 8 on Canadian country music charts. In subsequent years, "Goldmine", "No Trespassing", "Mustang Heart", "I Give You My Word", "What's Holding Me" and "Breakfast Alone" would also become top 10 singles and signature songs. He has also written a book of short stories depicting ranch life entitled "My First Cow".

Awards include the Canadian Country Music Awards 'Male Vocalist Of The Year' (3 times) and the Juno Awards 'Country Male Vocalist Of The Year' (three times). George acted as host of the CCMA Awards television show from 1991 to 1994. In 1995, his home town of Cochrane named a new street "George Fox Trail" in his honor.

George and his wife Monica live near Ancaster in southern Ontario with their two daughters.
