The Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville Honors Marty Stuart, Vince Gill and Billy Gibbons

by Rich and Laura Lynch

The Musicians Hall of Fame concert and induction ceremony honored two of Nashville's favorite sons and a guitar god from the Lone Star State at their event that took place in Nashville, Tennessee on November 22, 2022. There was a buzz in the air as the inductees took their seats on the couches in front of the stage where they were given medallions and jackets as a welcome to the MHOF. Family and stars such as Amy Grant and Connie Smith were in attendance.

Mr. Marty Stuart was all smiles in Nashville.

Marty Stuart is a singer, songwriter and musician who is well respected in the bluegrass and country worlds. Stuart at a young age toured with Lester Flatt and later with Johnny Cash before becoming a successful solo artist who has recorded over 20 studio albums and has charted over 30 times on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Since 2002, Marty has fronted The Fabulous Superlatives who were also rightfully inducted with Stuart at the ceremony. During the concert portion of the night, Steve Miller spoke about Marty's career and commitment to the genre before introducing the group and jamming with them!

One word - Superlative!

Vince Gill is one of the most popular artists in modern country music so it is no wonder that the Eagles asked him to join the touring version of the band. Gill is famous for his stellar songwriting, world-class guitar playing paired with a warm, soaring tenor, all wrapped up in a quick and easy wit. He has won 22 Grammys along with many other awards including his 2022 induction into the MHOF.

Vince Gill's guitar has taken him all the way to the Musicians Hall of Fame.

Rodney Crowell was on hand to honor Vince at the concert who returned the complement by stating that it was Rodney who encouraged Gill to shift from being a session player to a frontman. Crowell clearly saw Vince's gifts which like a fine wine have only improved with age.

Vince Gill - flying high again in Nashville.

Billy F Gibbons was presented with the Iconic Riff Award after all he has crafted some of the most recognizable riffs in the modern era. He is the lead guitarist and vocalist for ZZ Top who have been selling millions of records and entertaining crowds since 1969. It was revealed that the idea behind the band was to turn the blues into a party. ZZ Top has certainly done that while crossing over to pop and achieving much success in the MTV era with their unique look and style of playing. CGP guitarist Steve Wariner introduced Mr. Gibbons who gave us the most rocking moments of the night with renditions of "Tush" and "LaGrange" to end the festivities on a very high note.

Billy Gibbons proves that all the world needs is one good riff (or two)!

ABOUT THE MHOF: The Musicians Hall of Fame is a premiere Nashville attraction and the one and only museum in the world that honors the talented musicians who actually played on the greatest recordings of all time. The facility honors musicians regardless of genre or instrument. Since 2007, they have now held seven total induction ceremonies honoring the best players and instrumental persons behind the scenes in the music industry. Make sure to check out the MHOF located in the basement of the Nashville Municipal Auditorium on 401 Gay Street the next time you visit in Music City.

A grand finale sent everyone home with a lifetime of memories from Music City.
