The Rockabilly Hall of Fame is an organization and website launched on March 21, 1997 to present early rock and roll history and information relating to the artists and personalities involved in rockabilly.[1]

Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, the first induction certificate was issued on November 16, 1997, for singer Gene Vincent. The creation of Bob Timmers, the not-for-profit entity maintains a website that is supported in part by the fans and artists of the music it represents. The site has a UK representative (Rod Pyke) and Canadian representative (Johnny Vallis). Over 5,000 "legends"[2] are listed on the web site, and about 400 have been "inducted".[3] Inductions are restricted to artists with notable performances prior to (and including) 1962.[3] The web site features news updates, artist profile pages, performer tribute pages, videos, photos, and feature columns.

Among honorees are pioneer singers, songwriters, disc jockeys, and promoters/producers such as Sun Records owner Sam Phillips.[3]
