Other honorees include the late Western film star and singer Gene Autry, the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Four Tops, Dean Martin, jazz pianist Hank Jones and folk singer/songwriter Tom Paxton. “I have worked my whole lifetime to get to this point,” Brenda tells Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean. “To think that I would even be considered for the honor, I can’t believe it.”
