Call me clueless, but I had no idea Gram Parsons hasn’t yet been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. I mean...doesn’t he just seem like an obvious choice? Well, apparently the Co. Mu. folks don’t think so. Fortunately, some locals had the presence of mind to start a petition a few months back in order to have the Flying Burrito Brother inducted. They recently surpassed their goal of 2,000 signatures, but hell...the more the merrier. Go here to sign.
They’re sending the petition over on Sept. 19—the 35th anniversary of Parsons’ death—and there will be a party/show that night at Nashville Palace featuring covers from Walter Egan and more.
