The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame is set to induct five new members with its 2014 class this Saturday at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa.

One of this year’s inductees is J.J. Cale, who is probably most well known as the songwriter of tunes made popular by Eric Clapton (“Cocaine”) and Lynyrd Skynyrd (“Call Me the Breeze”).

Guthrie Ends Summer With Block Party

Sep 22, 2014

Guthrie closes out its summer concert series with a lineup of local and international bands.

KOSU’s Kate Strum reports on Make Guthrie Weird.

Make Guthrie Weird welcomes fall this Saturday with its last block party of the year featuring musicians from Oklahoma and beyond.  

The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame announced their 2014 class of inductees Tuesday afternoon.

Included in the list are late singer and guitarist J.J. Cale, blues rock guitarist Elvin Bishop, drummer Jim Keltner, drummer Chuck Blackwell, and late blues guitarist Lowell Fulson.

John Fullbright was inducted as a "Rising Star" earlier this year.

Official ceremonies and a concert honoring the inductees will take place on November 1 at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa.

There are, you could argue, two strands of Eric Clapton fans: those who love his scorching electric solos and groundbreaking fusions of blues and rock, and those who prefer his mellow, unplugged pop songs from later years. The two groups might just find common ground on his latest album.
