Ricky Nelson, the 1950s teen idol and rockabilly pioneer responsible for such hits as Hello Mary Lou, Travelin Man, and Lonesome Town, is slated to be inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame on October 11th. The ceremony will take place at the world-famous Overton Park Shell, where Nelson s sons Matthew and Gunnar (collectively known as Nelson) will perform a tribute set to their father by singing his greatest hits. Mercifully, they won t be singing their own.
