Today’s inductee goes back to 1963. At least that is when songwriter H.W. Van Hoose penned the song for the Stamps Quartet Music Company.
“Green Pastures” was barely heard of until the Goodmans recorded it on their 1981 recording, Goin’ Higher. The song charted for the group and became a favorite.
Here is a recent performance of the song by bluegrass/country legend, Emmylou Harris.
