Harold Bradley Elected To Country Music Hall Of Fame

The Country Music Association (CMA) has elected country music recording pioneer and legendary session musician Harold Bradley to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Bradley is international vice president of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) and president of Local 257 (Nashville, TN).

The ceremony will take place at the Gaylord Entertainment Center in downtown Nashville during "The 40th Annual CMA Awards," which will be broadcast live on the ABC network on November 6.

Bradley's award comes on the heels of two recent honors. In August, he was given an AFM Lifetime Achievement Award on the same night that he was the subject of an edition of the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum's "Nashville Cat" series.

"Harold—along with his brother Owen, Chet Atkins, and members of the A Team—put Nashville on the map," notes AFM President Thomas F. Lee. "Without their leadership, the Country Music Hall of Fame might very well be in a different city. The AFM is rightly proud to be represented in the Hall of Fame by its vice president. Hal remains a model Federation member and guiding light for other professional musicians."

The CMA notes that Bradley is one of the most recorded guitar players in history, as well as a prolific producer. Bradley is one of 12 musicians inducted into the Studio Musicians Hall of Fame at RCA's Studio B, now a museum operated by the Country Music Foundation. In the late 1940s, Bradley and his brother Owen built Nashville's first recording facility, Castle Recording Studio. Owen, who died in 1998, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1974.

Along with Bradley, two other AFM musicians will be inducted into the Hall of Fame—George Strait of Local 433 (Austin, TX) and James Loden of Local 257, known as Sonny James.

Strait is one of the most popular country music artists ever. His record sales exceed 62 million, and he has had a top 10 hit every year since his chart debut in 1981. The Recording Industry Association of America has certified 13 multi-platinum, 30 platinum, and 33 gold albums by Strait.

Sonny James, also known as "The Southern Gentleman," had a string of hits through the '60s and '70s, including his signature song "Young Love," which spent nine weeks atop the charts in 1956.
