It may come as a surprise that Charlie Rich is not in the Country Music Hall of Fame, even after dominating the landscape of country music with songs like "Behind Closed Doors" and "The Most Beautiful Girl" for the better part of a decade. Admittedly there’s been a number of legendary talents vying for this very special honor, but we think it’s time Charlie took his rightful place in the pantheon of country music greats. That’s why we’re appealing to you to help.

The Country Music Hall of Fame was founded in 1961 by the Country Music Association to honor noteworthy individuals for their outstanding contributions to Country Music. To date 62 members--ranging from pioneers Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams to recent inductees Tammy Wynette and Elvis Presley--have been inducted into the Hall. It’s the biggest honor anyone associated with country music can receive.
