    Perhaps that guideline is there to be sure people make it a priority. We all know how lots of Opry members treat their obligations. While I know no more than anyone else I would think given Carrie's situation she'll be invited next year.

    ^ yes it makes them sound really snotty like they refuse to reschedule even for a medical issue like this. Very odd.

    I think re-nomination is a virtual certainty in Carrie's case - but, on reflection, I think I can see why they don't make it automatic as a general rule. Being involved in activities that help others, and help the State are an important part of the honour (at least in principle - I'm sure there've been cases that didn't please everyone - but I think that is still the idea). People are not supposed to get in just for bring well known in a particular entertainment sphere. Hence the wider activities in recent years are an important part of the citation, and those activities might not be continued in subsequent years. In Carrie's case, we all know she would want them to - so I'm sure they'll go from there.

    With the articles I've read with the mayor talking about all the unsung things she's done, she'll be nominated again. She's a shoe-in!!!

    I agree 100%. She will be inducted at some point in her life, even if it is not next year (though I think it will be). Her contributions are too great for her not to be considered again.

    Hope she gets included for next year.

    It would be strange if she weren't nominated next year.

    @dfrogger Replying to @CourtM21
    I finally called them and asked. They said both the committee there and Carrie's team decided together to do it this way because Carrie really wants to be able to be there and accept it in person. They also are disappointed as they love Carrie and wish her a speedy recovery.

    I honestly think that this whole thing is being blown way out of proportion.I donít think they would maliciously revoke a induction unless the honoree did something that would cause that to happen.This whole situation didnít happen on purpose,Carrie didnít plan for her wrist to get broken.A woman going by the handle of @dfrogger called them & had this to say:I finally called them and asked. They said both the committee there and Carrie's team decided together to do it this way because Carrie really wants to be able to be there and accept it in person. They also are disappointed as they love Carrie and wish her a speedy recovery. In my own opinion,I donít think it even sounds the least bit snotty to me.Iím guessing that this was all last minute,so thatís probably why there wasnít a press release because it all probably came together at the very last minute.This may not please you,but I think that youíre really blowing all of this way out of proportion & making it a bigger deal than it really is.Life is just too short to be worrying about these things & I doubt Carrie is spending too much time worrying about this whole ordeal.

    I’m sure Carrie will be inducted next year. She is a proud Okie. They clearly want her as a part of the HOF. Continued love to Carrie has she recovers from her accident.

    The article says that the new inductees were introduced at a luncheon in Tulsa on May 17. Guess Carrie had to miss that? The actual ceremony will be in November. Don't know if it is televised....I'll watch the papers, at that time!

    I'm so glad they didn't make her wait any longer to be inducted since her missing the ceremony last year was out of her control.

    I’m honored my friend @carrieunderwood has asked me 2 present her with such a prestigious award. As a proud Oklahoman I think this is the pinnacle. Being recognized by the place that made you. Looking forward to this #OklahomaHallofFame #OklahomaProud oklahomahof.com/banquet-induct…
