Whoa!!! "New San Antonio Rose", "Take Me Back to Tulsa" the list goes on and on..... Personally though, "Big Beaver" should have been more than enough to get Bob Wills inducted. Sheer perfection!

No other country musician was, is, or will ever be as musically progressive as Bob Wills. A surface-level look might lead one to peg him as just another country & western star, but his musical style is so much vaster than that. Having listened to some of his stuff earlier today, I can vouch that his material is a swell melting pot of so many styles: swing, honky-tonk, ragtime, blues, tradtional country & western, New Orleans jazz, stride piano, etc.
