Kenny Rogers Inducted Into The Hall Of Fame, Hopes Dottie West Will Be Inducted

For years I've said that Kenny Rogers, should be inducted into The Country Music Hall Of Fame. It was announced earlier this week that Kenny, along with Bobby Bare, and Cowboy Jack Clement, will be inducted into the prestigious Hall. All, are very deserving, and this is one of the better classes of Inductees the CMA, has inducted into a long time. As of late, it seemed that the CMA, has included artists who could wait a while longer, so that many legends who paved the way for them, could be inducted.

Kenny, made a wonderful statement in an interview with AOL's the Boot, about one of those legends who sadly, has never been inducted into the Hall Of Fame, Dottie West. "I told the executives that Dottie deserves to be in here maybe even more than me."

Rogers, also stated that he would most like his friend and duet partner, Dolly Parton, to be involved with his induction ceremony. The two will have a new duet coming out this year, which will mark their sixth country radio single. The two also recorded one of the most successful Christmas albums of all time, Once Upon A Christmas, which includes several duets. Their duet of Islands In The Stream, is one of the biggest selling records of all time, any genre. The pair had a high rated CBS, Christmas Special; A Christmas to Remember, an HBO Special; Real Love, NBC Concert Special with Willie Nelson; Kenny, Dolly, and Willie: Something Inside So Strong. They've also toured extensively and appeared on countless TV shows and specials.
