Wilson was instrumental in the careers of Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, and Shania Twain, while heavy-hitters like George Jones, Tammy Wynette, and Charlie Rich recorded songs penned by Norro. A member of the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Allen County native was included in the Country Music Hall of Fame’s “Poets and Prophets” series in 2011.
