My ballot
Johnny Cash. Extremely influential on Country. Some Rock artists took influence from non rockers and Johnny Cash is one of the most common. Due to being so influential in music I have to give a vote to Cash.
Hall & Oates. Pop/Soul/Rock juggernauts. So many hits and a large amount of influence gives Hall & Oates my vote.
Isley Brothers. Shoo in 50s act.
Queen. Do I need to explain?
Rod Stewart. One of the 60s and 70s biggest rock stars Stewart shined both with the Faces and solo. That is why he is on my ballot.
Lynyrd Skynyrd. Another obvious pick that most people will vote for. Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama alone solidify their case yet alone their other songs.
