The Country Music Association posted on Twitter today that the 2017 Hall of Fame announcement will take place on Wednesday April 5. Vince Gill will be the host.
As previously stated, and in doing a quick check of the leading candidates, or those mentioned, Ricky Skaggs has a show in Nashville that evening. Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, Hank Williams, Jr., Tanya Tucker, Crystal Gayle and Ray Stevens have nothing listed on their schedule for that date. I am sure others will chime in with a few more of their favorites.
Good luck to everyone and personally, I hope a few of the categories have ended in tie votes and we can get more than just one person in from each category.
(I know some have posted comments on other posts, but I thought there could be one central place for any comments).
