Congratulations to the Country Music Hall of Fame Class of 2022. All of the incoming inductees are well deserved and a long time coming. Many would agree that Keith Whitley and Jerry Lee Lewis deserved to be inducted a long time ago. The only problem I have is the number of inductees this year.....why only 3? I presented my displeasure about the low number to HOF member Charlie Daniels many years ago and he disagreed with me. I will post that interview later this week.
I love country music and I live and breathe Country Music with a passion. Did you know that June Carter Cash is not in the Country Music Hall of Fame? Neither are Wanda Jackson, Tanya Tucker, Freddy Fender and many other artists who we would assume their plaques would be hanging on the wall. Can we have more than a few inductees each year. I know that many of the artists that I have mentioned have passed, but let's celebrate the artists who are still with us and their careers. I am shocked that June Carter Cash and Tanya Tucker are not in yet and I'm grateful that Jerry Lee Lewis is still with us so we can recognize his accomplishments and contributions to country music. Can't we have at least 5 inductees added every year? Personally I would love to see Asleep At The Wheel, currently celebrating their 50th year together, in the Hall as well as my mentor Bob Kingsley. Who do you think should be added? God Bless Country Music!
