Great choices, congrats to Emmy, the Statlers, and the great Tom T. Hall.

In case people didn’t know, there has been a petition drawing international attention (Sirius Radio interview, Paste Magazine article, signers from around the world) to induct Emmylou’s admitted mentor, Gram Parsons, himself into the CMHOF. Please check it out at: http://www.gramparsonspetition.com
