Bo Bice Honored in Alabama Music Hall of Fame

April 18, 2006 07:13 PM by Joe Blackmon

Bobice_halloffame_1American Idol Runner-Up, Bo Bice was recently honored in the Alabama Music Hall of Fame Museum with a special display of Bice’s memorabilia. Hall of Fame Director, David Johnson, wanted to display some of Bice’s stage outfits he wore in the American Idol competiton. Bice says he is excited and honored to be a part of the Hall of Fame and sent the clothing to be presented by his mother, Nancy Downes, and grandmother, Madge Schofield. Donated was the clothing he wore during his first appearance on American Idol.

These were made by his Grandmother, Granny Madge. Johnson says, "I’m excited to receive the memorabilia of Bo Bice and display these for the public to enjoy." The Alabama Music Hall of Fame was founded in 1987 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and draws thousands of tourists each year. Among it’s inductees are Tammy Wynette, Hank Williams, Hank Williams, Jr., Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and numerous other music acheivers.

With state funding recently being lowered, the Hall of Fame now depends largely on benefit concerts. Johnson says, "From performing to songwriting and from management to publishing, Alabamians have contributed in many ways to make the music industry what it is today. Bo Bice is a good example of this and we would like to get him here for a benefit concert."

    He should be in the Hall of Fame as the biggest disappointment to ever come out of “Idol.” His album was a HUGE FLOP and is no longer in the TOP 200- what a joke! Carrie Underwood should be in that Hall of Fame, she has done more for country music than Bo Lice will do in a lifetime.

    Congratulations to Bo Bice for this honor. I wasn’t a fan of A.I. until I heard Bo sing “Vehicle” and then “In a Dream”. No one will be able to duplicate that this year on Idol.

    Thanks for the great article Evie. And “way to go” Bo. You have joined some awesome company in the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. I don’t know any one that deserves it more. We all know how hard you have worked at your craft, and we get to reap all the benefits. Keep up the good work, and call your mother more often. And yes, Carrie has done more for country music because Bo doesn’t sing country! DUH

    CONGRATULATIONS BO!!!
    THIS IS A WELL DESERVED AWARD. YOU HAVE REPRESENTED THE STATE OF ALABAMA WELL, AND YOU CONTINUE TO DO SO. I PERSONALLY LOVED YOUR LATEST ALBUM “THE REAL THING”. THE MORE I LISTEN TO IT THE MORE I APPRECIATE AND ENJOY IT. THE LAST TIME I CHECKED, IT HAD WENT GOLD AND WAS VERY NEAR TO ACHIEVING PLATINUM STATUS. YOU ARE A CONSUMATE SEASONED PERFORMER. I FOR ONE CANNOT WAIT UNTIL YOU RELEASE YOUR NEXT ALBUM. KEEP ON DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU HERE IN ALABAMA. COME BACK AND VISIT OFTEN PLEASE!!!
    BEST WISHES IN THE FUTURE!
    P.S. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING YOUR GRANDMOTHER IN THE WAL-MART IN DECATUR, ALABAMA A COUPLE OF TIMES. SHE IS A REAL GENUINE DOWN TO EARTH PERSON(JUST LIKE YOU).

    Way to go, Bo! And regarding his album, that AI contract is so constricting…..he had to do the songs chosen for him. The song he wrote “Valley of Angels” is really good and they should have let him do more of his own stuff.

    Bo is better than his album and I hope his second album rocks. I can’t wait to see him in concert – missed him last year cuz of his emergency surgery.

    Bo rocks!

    This is truly an honor to be recognized at The Alabama Music Hall of Fame. Alabamians have always been known for their contributions to music through publishing, writing, managing and singing. Bo is no exception to this. In fact, his mother and his Aunt Evie are Achievers in the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is NOT limited to Country Performers only. And it IS limited to just Alabamians. There are many who have produced and published rock and roll as well as performed rock in the Hall. We are so very proud of Bo as well as many other who will follow in the footsteps of those who have come before him. This is a tradition for Alabama – making great music in Muscle Shoals. And now, Bo Bice has been honored there as well. Keep on rocking Bo. We await your next CD with great anticipation!
    And, for anyone who has never visited the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and ever gets the opportunity to do so; it is well worth the time to make the trip.

    Yo Doonna, check your in-breeding, his album is on the charts and the single is on three charts and still climbing……..when your panties get in a twist like then, undo them before bashing on Bo you loser.

    And by the way, uh, Donna? Carrie is a JOKE in Nashville; check out Judd’s comments on her In Front of Her Face to the press about the girl…………she’s a pretty face (who needs to fix that chin) with good writers……….true country writes it’s own………she’s a wanna-be and always will be.

    Congratulations, Bo! You rock, we love you! Thanks, too, to Grandma Madge for making some of your great outfits that are now on display. And, a great big Thank You to your Mother, Nancy, for bringing such a man into this world! To hear your voice brings me joy, Bo.

    Congratulations to Bo on a very well-deserved recognition. I am loving music again because of the gifts of this wonderful man.

    Donna Lane, YOU are THE disappoinnment in THIS world. You are so prejudiced, you are a basher and so you are the loser. Dumb, too. I’m not even American nor is English my mother tongue but I understand that Alabama Hall of Fame recognizes Alabamians, not Oklahomans.DUH.

    Bo’s album a flop? What is your definition of a flop, if your brain is even capable of understanding the big word “flop”?
    Isn’t Bo the only Idol alumnus other than Kelly Clarkson whose single has been played by Z100? I wonder why?

    Isn’t Bo a runner-up and hence less is invested in his career?

    In my country Bo’s video is on MTV,MYX and VH1 and his song is being played on radio. I know, Carrie’s video is on CMT but she’s not being played here because my country doesn’t go so much for country music. The only point I’m making is Bo and Carrie have different markets. Bo is in a harder to penetrate genre and one that is not so accommodating to AI alumni. Duh again.

    So puhleassse, next time you want you bash someone, just bash yourself, ok. Sheeesh. Why did the Universe make people like you???!

    Congrats again to Bo the rocker, singer, songwriter, musician from Alabama!!!!!!!

    Congratulations Bo. Love you CD the real thing. The more I listen to it the better it is.And to ever who is bashing both Bo & Carrie obviouslly they cant sing because they both have beautiful voices. I would like to see Bo and Carrie do a song together on Bo s next alblum.
    PS iF YOU WERE ON THIS YEARS IDOL YOU WOULD WIN HANDS DOWN. I HAVE NEVER HEARD SUCH LOUSY SINGER AS ON THIS YEARS IDOL. THE BEST SINGERS WERE ALL ON LAST YEARS IDOL. BYE FOR NOW KEEP SINGING WHAT YOU WANT AND DONT LISTEN TO THE CRITICS.

    Please everyone notice this is the ALABAMA Music Hall of Fame for natives of ALABAMA. This is a huge difference fron Oklahoma. There are many great artists that have come from Oklahoma as from Alabama and if music lovers and artists of Oklahoma choose to have a Hall of Fame, so be it, but please do not criticize our artists whether it be the members of the group Alabama that are originally from here, Hank Sr and Jr or Bo Bice. Thanks.
