Wednesday, April 10, 2013 is the date that we learn who will be inducted into the prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame. Last year the honor went to Garth Brooks, Connie Smith, and studio musician Hargus ‘Pig’ Robbins.

Before the official announcement is made, we’d like to know who you’d like to see inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013.  In my humble opinion, I’d like to see Kenny Rogers, Ronnie Milsap, The Judds, Randy Travis, The Oak Ridge Boys, Anne Murray, John Conlee, Tanya Tucker or Ricky Skaggs get one of the plaques. In the veterans era, we need to think about Jim Ed Brown, Jack Greene, Bobby Bare, Leroy Van Dyke, Billy Walker, Johnny Horton, Dottie West, Jerry Reed, and Mickey Gilley.

Who would you like to see honored? Please leave your comments and suggestions below. Click here for a complete list of artists already inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

By the way, there are three categories. We will only see two singers make the elite list, while a third non-performer will round out the 2013 roster.

  • Modern Era (eligible for induction in this category 20 years after they first achieve national prominence)
  • Veterans Era (eligible for induction in this category 45 years after they first achieve national prominence)
  • Non-Performer, Songwriter, and Recording and/or Touring Musician active prior to 1980 (rotates every 3 years — this year’s inductee is Non-Performer)

UPDATE: The results are in and two of my picks made the cut! Click here.
