Congratulations to my sweetheart Emmylou, the Statler Brothers, Tom T. Hall, and Ernest V. “Pop” Stoneman, all of whom were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame this year. Lots of music by all of these artists that I have yet to experience–I’ve never even heard of “Pop” Stoneman. So much great music, so little time.
Did you know that Gram Parsons is not in the Hall of Fame? Inexcusable.
Here’s a little-known but very good latter-day Tom T. Hall song, “The Shoes and Dress That Alice Wore.” I can’t embed the video because Universal Music is lame. Guys–I’m trying to promote your artists! Work with me here!
