Backup Musicians Hall of Fame

This can only be described as a sort of oxymoronic honor - Joe Chambers, a Nashville based singer and songwriter, has recently opened the Musician's Hall of Fame and Museum, where "legendary" backing musicians are honored.

But it won't honor folks like Pete Drake (steel guitar on "Lay Lady Lay"), drummer Chad Smith, or bassist Floyd "Lightnin'" Chance. Producers like Owen Bradley (Patsy Cline) also get displays. Chambers hasn't ACTUALLY inducted anyone into the Hall of Fame yet, but plans on honoring a few musicians every year. In the meantime, biographical and informative displays will be shown.
