Any Old Miracle: Let's send Vern Gosdin to the Hall of Fame

'Music filled my life and wrapped me in fantacy...' and it still does. I live it. I love it.

Vern Gosdin, known as The Voice, has been overlooked by the Country Music Hall of Fame way too long. One of his own recordings has the answer...

First Just Listen

He Didn't Write It

But it sounds like he did.

Vern On Stage

I had the Honor

And privilege of interviewing Vern after he came off the stage at the opening of his Amphitheater in Ardmore, Alabama, in August of 1991.

He was literally on a high! High on the adrenalin of a culmination of a dream and the enthusiasm of the crowd.

...this drawing I did of him... He said, 'It looks almost exactly like me.'

Well, that's an oxi-moron, but I'll take it!

Vern's Released 10 Years of Greatest Hits in 1990


Ironically, Vern only had two or three number one hits, and that may be what is keeping him out out of the Hall of Fame, but what powerful songs they were, especially Chisled In Stone.

AND when you consider his forty years as an entertainer, that should account for something!


The Boxed Set

Think about it...

There is no ungodly reason Vern Gosdin should not take his place in the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME.

Vern Gosdin belongs in the CMHOF and it is shameful that the CMA doesn't recognize that ! Wake up and do your job CMA !
