Marty Brown inducted into the KY Music Hall of Fame

Since 2002, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame has recognized musicians whose art has spanned beyond the Commonwealth and touched the lives of people across the country or around the world.

KENTUCKY MUSIC HALL OF FAME

Unlike the Country Music Hall of Fame or the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame does not induct artists on an annual basis. Over the past 20 years, new members have only been announced eight times, in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2018.

Notable inductees over the years include Loretta Lynn, Tom T. Hall, The Everly Brothers, Bill Monroe, Grandpa Jones, Ricky Skaggs, The Judds, Mary Travers (Peter, Paul and Mary), Dwight Yoakam, Crystal Gayle, Florence Henderson, Patty Loveless, John Michael Montgomery, Keith Whitley, the Kentucky Headhunters, Montgomery Gentry and Billy Ray Cyrus among many others.

MARTY BROWN INTRODUCED IN KENTUCKY MUSIC HALL OF FAME

Those “others” now include Daviess County’s Carly Pearce, Norah Lee Allen, Paul Yandell, Pete Goble and Marty Brown.

MARTY BROWN’S GREATEST BLOW

From 1991 Marty’s “Every Now and Then” on MCA Records. It was a very exciting time here in the Owensboro area when his career kicked into high gear. And then his “I’m from the Country” — co-written with Stan Webb and Richard Young of the Kentucky Headhunters — became a top-three hit and a staple on country radio. This is arguably Tracy Byrd’s signature song.

INTERVIEW WITH MARTY BROWN

Marty stopped by the station for an interview on Tuesday afternoon. We talked about the induction AND the ceremony, which will take place on October 28 in Mt. Vernon.

In the interview, Marty mentioned he would be performing at the blockbuster induction, along with Carly Pearce and Norah Lee Allen. You can check out the interview here:

MARTY BROWN’S BUSY SCHEDULE

So yes, in addition to his performance at the induction ceremony, Marty will be in attendance for the HGTV Hometown Kickstart at LaGrange on April 29. In fact, Marty tells me he’s always busy and in demand as an artist all over the country; it’s a huge fan favorite in Alaska. And from here he’s heading to Connecticut for a performance.

We congratulate Marty Brown on his magnificent success and this great honour. Hey, I love the Halls of Fame, and now I can say I know someone who’s there.
