One of my musical heroes, Willie Nelson, turns 79 today.

I grew up on the music of Willie, Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard. It was a different time and era for Country Music. It truly seems, at least for Willie, the road does go on forever.

Some years back, there was a song by George Jones, titled, "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes," that discussed who would be among the next generation of Country entertainers that would "fill the shoes," of some of the great heritage artists.

Surely, Alan Jackson is headed to the Country Music Hall of Fame.  George Strait, Reba and Alabama are already there.

Tell us, which of today's Country entertainers might be worthy of the Hall of Fame in future years?
