“Growing up in Oklahoma, one could only dream of such recognition. We are honored even to be considered, much less be amongst so many Oklahoma icons in the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. Thank you to our fans, ENCORE Music Group, for new opportunities, and, of course, the Hall of Fame, for bestowing such an honor.” – Heath Wright, RICOCHET

We are honored to have them inducted into our Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.” – Tony L. Corbell, Executive Director
