Dottie Rambo To Be Inducted Into Kentucky Music Hall of Fame

Dottie Rambo, a gospel singer, will be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame on February 23, 2006. Lily Tomlin, a friend of Rambo's and one of the funniest women ever along with Lucille Ball, will be presenting the award.

Its halls are lined with former inductees who have made consequential strides in advancing the heritage and broadening the audience of music. Past recipients of this prestigious honor have been such recognizable Kentuckians as Ricky Skaggs, Tom T. Hall and "The Coal Miner's Daughter" Loretta Lynn.

Dottie Rambo is the undisputed Queen of gospel music and probably is the most prolific songwriter of this age. Rambo is a dedicated follower of Christ, and, due to that unwavering commitment, she was shunned by her father at the age of 12. She has certainly had her share of heart aches.
