Arden, NC (Jan. 16, 2020) — Mountain Home Music Company recording artist The Chuck Wagon Gang saw great success in 2019 with the release of their album No Depression In Heaven: The Gospel Songs Of The Carter Family, which quickly claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and reached No. 2 on the Nielsen Soundscan Southern Gospel Chart.
Now, they’ll be adding another accolade to their already storied career as the group’s recording of “I’ll Fly Away”—written by Albert Brumley in 1932 and recorded by the Chuck Wagon Gang with its original members in 1948—will be inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame. Founded in 1973, the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame honors recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old. Inductees are selected annually by a special member committee of eminent and knowledgeable professionals from all branches of the recording arts.
“How honored we are to know that this classic Chuck Wagon Gang recording will be inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame for 2020!” says Shaye Smith, the current alto singer and granddaughter of original alto Anna Carter Gordon Davis. “It is so exciting for us to see The Gang receiving such prominent recognition! I think those original four would be very proud!”
