In the Hall of Fame’s rotunda, Williams will join his father, the legendary, Hank Williams Sr. “All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over”, “Family Traditions”, etc are his claim to fame. He said,
“Bocephus has been eyeing this one for awhile. It’s a bright spot during a difficult year,”
“I have been making Top 10 records for 56 years. I fell off a mountain and tried to reinvent myself as a truly individual artist and one who stepped out of the shadows of a very famous man…one of the greatest. I’ve got to thank all those rowdy friends who, year after year, still show up for me. It’s an honor to carry on this family tradition. It is much appreciated.”
Stuart is one of the traditionalists in the arena of country music. He is very much respected in the circle. Some of his famous are, “Hillbilly Rock”, “Tempted”, “Burn Me Down”, etc. He said,
“I’m so honored to be included in this class and I’m honored to be included alongside Hank Jr. and Dean Dillon. I love those people. To be officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame is beyond words. I’m usually not at a loss for words.”
He is famous for his collaboration and association with George Strait. He is the face of the words of all time hits, “Ocean Front Property”, “Unwound”, etc. he said,
“I was just speechless,trying to soak in the words that I had just heard. My life flashed before my eyes. You could’ve knocked me over with a feather.”
