INDUCTION
CERTIFICATES


THE ROCKABILLY HALL OF FAME¨ was created in March, 1997 and the first certificate was presented personally, by Bob Timmers, to Sarah "Tina" Craddock for her brother Gene Vincent on Sunday, November 16th, 1997

Elvis Presley has been added almost 10 years later, mainly because the RHOF didn't believe Graceland had the proper respect for our efforts. We are now assured the family is happy to receive this award and will give it a proper home.

The criteria for induction is that the performer had played AND recorded up to (and including) 1962.

We DO HAVE an Induction Page for those artists who played and recorded after 1962 ... and up until today. See our 2nd GENERATION page.

Unfortunately we have lost all our paper work regarding the actual dates of the inductions due to the Nashville flood.

If you are (or know of) an Inductee's location, please pass the name and address on for consideration to: The Rockabilly Hall of Fame¨, P.O. Box 210058, Nashville, TN 37221 - or E-Mail the Rockabilly HOF.
