NEW INDUCTEES FOR ALABAMA MUSIC HALL OF FAME
TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (AP) – Harvey Thompson and three members of the Muscle Shoals Horns will be inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame during its Feb. 26 induction banquet in Florence.
The 74-year-old Thompson said the Horns’ inclusion in the 2016 class of inductees “is going to be fantastic.”
The Horns include fellow Shoals resident Charles Rose, Harrison Calloway and Ronnie Eades.
Also being inducted are former Grateful Dead member Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, producer Johnny Sandlin, the Southern rock band Wet Willie, and keyboardist Chuck Leavell.
State Tourism Director Lee Sentell said the hall of fame’s board tapped into several sources — including the public — for suggestions on inductees. It was the first time the organization opened up the process to fans around the state.
