Seems like the perfect person to honor for such a long and successful career. Way back in the day, he was known to be mistook for Elvis.

Hell, he should be inducted just for having the coolest name in popular music! I don't know if his music career qualifies his, though . . . I kinda doubt it, though I liked the guy a lot . . .

Well he's already in both the Country and Rockabilly Hall of Fames.

If Conway Twitty still hasn't been inducted, something is very wrong. His legacy of musical excellence does reach R&R; just listen to "It's Only Make Believe." For this and other reasons, he belongs.r

Back again. If musical excellence is the essential qualification for induction, how can you leave out Country Music's all-time hit maker.

It's Only Make Believe should be an essential.
