My long time friend and author of This Magic Moment, Harry Turner, has come up with BRILLIANT idea: induct Eddie Ray in his own hometown of Franklin, North Carolina!
Yes, Eddie grew up in Franklin 90 years ago and attended the same little Episcopal church I do – Saint Cyprian’s where Eddie told me many of his relatives are buried.
This could put our little Franklin on the map as many of Eddie’s music discoveries like the legendary music mogul Mike Curb would be invited by our emcee Harry Turner to attend Eddie’s induction! Mike is also the former lieutenant governor of California.
Of course Charlie Daniels is a regular in Franklin and an inductee in the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame, where Eddie is Executive Director.
The time frame would be in the middle of October.
