Hank Williams Jr. Gets Hall of Fame Honor
"Being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame is like winning Entertainer of the Year. Moments like this are very rare," Williams said in a statement. "What a thrill to be inducted, as my father was, and to continue the Williams legacy."
The induction ceremony will take place on October 14th. Aside from Williams and Flatt & Scruggs, songwriters Bob DiPiero ("American Made") and Mac McAnally ("Old Flame") will also be inducted. And this year includes a special induction for gospel songwriter Dottie Rambo.
