Jimmy Dean, Don Williams, more to be inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame

The Country Music Hall of Fame announced its 2010 inductees this week, and the four honored include a goofball '60s-era honky-tonk feller, an earnest '70s-era troubadour, a pop-country songwriter/producer, and a man known as well for his meat as for his music.

Jimmy Dean

We're not talking Rebel Without a Cause here; we're talking Sausage King. Jimmy Dean had a string of hits from the late 50s through the late 70s including "Big Bad John" and "PT 109," and enjoyed a successful acting career. But Dean is best known as founder of and spokesman for the Jimmy Dean Sausage company. Just thinking about this man makes me hungry as all hell.

Ferlin Husky

One of the most unique voices in country in the 1950s and early 60s, Ferlin Husky is well-known for his hit "Wings of a Dove" as well as for his duet with Jean Shepard "A Dear John Letter."
