Cowboy Jack Clement


While Jack’s work as a singer isn’t as well as known as the lives and careers he touched, his effect on country music is undeniable.  He worked as a producer at the famed Sun Studio in Memphis that included the early works of Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and even Elvis.

 Bobby Bare

After failing as a rock roll singer in the late 50’s, Bare success came when he was singed by Chet Atkins in 1962.  Bare was one of the first country artists to tour Europe and many credit him with introducing Waylon Jennings to RCA Records.  He has a string of hits as long as your arm, including “Detroit City” and “500 Miles Away From Home.”  He continues to perform recently recording a duet with Jamey Johnson and in the late 90’s he formed the band, Old Dogs, with his friends Jerry Reed, Mel Tillis and Waylon Jennings.  He’s also the father of Bobby Bare Jr.


Kenny Rogers

What has Kenny Rogers not done? Still going strong, Kenny has released 32 albums and 80 albums and that’s just his country career. Remember? He started as rock act, Kenny Rogers and The First Edition. obviously Kenny stills tour and has added writing and photography to his resume. Check out Kenny’s reaction to being inducted into the Hall of Fame and the video to his very first big hit, “Ruby Don’t Take Your Love To Town.”
