The long-named and long-lived (since 1979) Massachusetts Country Music Awards Association has fallen upon hard times, failing to mount its traditional splashy Awards Show and its holiday jamborees this fall. Although focused on South Shore bands and performers (where, after the ’70s, most of the local country action has been), the MCMAA’s Hall of Fame has spotlighted Massachusetts natives from all over the state, and beyond. So it is good to hear that Ron Hill, the Chairman of the MCMAA Hall of Fame has taken it upon himself to keep the nominations, voting, and induction process going.
The Induction Ceremony and show is scheduled for January 31st:
HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY
FRANK CARUSO & THE COUNTRY GENTLEMEN
Lots of music and dancing from 2:00pm to 6:00 pm
Inductees this year are:
