Hall of Fame names Rejects ’08 rising stars
MUSKOGEE — Just before rocking the Muskogee Civic Center, the All-American Rejects received the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame’s 2008 Rising Star award Wednesday, joining other inductees in a celebration of the past, present and future of Oklahoma music."It’s a complete honor. It feels a little like we haven’t accomplished enough, but it is the ‘Rising Star,’” singer Tyson Ritter said at a news conference prior to the induction ceremony. "So it’s like the hall of fame is investing in us. So I hope we don’t let them down. And hopefully, we continue to rise.” Previous Rising Star recipients include Carrie Underwood, Keith Anderson and last year’s honoree, the Oklahoma City rock band Hinder.
