Petition to induct Australian Country Music Pioneer Kevin Shegog (dec) into the Tamworth Roll of Renown.

Hi country music fans.

I hope you'll join with me, my family, our friends and Kevin Shegog fans in our effort to build a petition to accompany a submission the organisers of the Tamworth Roll of Renown to consider posthumously awarding this honour to dad in 2023.  

One only has to look at his discography (below) to see  that W&G had so much faith in his ability, talent and popularity they continued to produce album after album and an impressive list of singles and EP's.

Dad was an extremely talented and prolific singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist who had numerous songs in the charts, both here and overseas.

The likes of Johnny Chester, Chad Morgan, Terry Gordon OAM and many fans and supporters believe dad's inclusion in the Roll of Renown is long overdue.

I hope you'll help us out by signing the petition and asking your friends to do the same.

I also invite letters of recommendation from anyone who feels their influence may have a positive effect on the decision making process in Tamworth. 

Thank you everyone, your support is highly valued and much appreciated.

Kindest regards

Susan Shegog
