Singer, songwriter, and storyteller Gordon Lightfoot is set for induction to the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame on June 14th in New York.  Gordon is a master at telling stories in song, and can get it done in a 3-minute span, or in an epic.   His legendary catalog includes 'Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald', 'Sundown', 'If You Could Read My Mind' and 'Early Morning Rain'.

 

Gordon played a great show right here in Abilene in 2010, and he continues to tour at the age of 75.   He will be inducted along with Bob Seger,  Jim Steinman, and Tom Jones.
