SGMA announces Hall of Fame Inductees
Earlier this week, in a story I unfortunately missed the day it broke, the Southern Gospel Music Association announced the 2009 inductees to the Southern Gospel Hall of Fame:
- Neil Enloe (Couriers)
- Ed Hill (Prophets, Stamps, Singing Americans, Masters V, Statesmen)
- Harold Lane (Speer Family)
- Don Light
- Bill Lyles (Blackwood Brothers)
- Elizabeth “Lady” Mull
- Billy Todd (Florida Boys, Dixie Echoes)
- Charlie Waller
A big congratulations to all the nominees, esepcially Neil Enloe (since there is a chance he might actually notice this)! Every nomination is well-deserved.
I do wonder why, from year to year, most of the nominees tend to be retired, semi-retired, or passed away. I do understand that the Hall of Fame is less than two decades old and there is a lot of catching up to do, but I am a big fan of honoring the living while they’re still with us and active in the genre whenever possible.
