Bill Monroe (1911 - 1996)

Monroe, considered by all to be the father of Bluegrass music, toured with his band, The Bluegrass Boys, for more than fifty years before his death in 1996. During his lifetime, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—the only artist so honored.
