Corridor, who was born in Olive Hill, Kentucky, was inducted into the Nation Music Corridor of Fame in 2008.
He is recognized for writing the 1968 hit “Harper Valley P.T.A.,” made common by Jeannie C. Riley, in addition to different songs similar to “A Week in a Nation Jail,” “I Love,” “The Yr That Clayton Delaney Died,” and “I Like Beer.”
“Tom T. Corridor’s masterworks fluctuate in plot, tone, and tempo, however they’re sure by his ceaseless and unyielding empathy for the triumphs and losses of others,” Nation Music Corridor of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Younger stated Friday.
“He wrote with out judgment or anger, providing a rhyming journalism of the guts that units his compositions aside from every other author. He was a storyteller, a thinker, a whiskey maker, a novelist, a poet, a painter, a benefactor, a letter author, a present giver, a gentleman farmer, and lots of extra issues.”
