Stevie Nicks to make history if inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

By Sarah Fischer



Stand back! By 2019, 70-year-old American singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks could make history by being the first female solo artist to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice.


According to the Ultimate Classic Rock website, she stands behind Def Leppard by only 8,000 votes. Nicks became a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 when Fleetwood Mac was inducted, and since then she has released several solo albums. She has even appeared multiple times in the hit TV show “American Horror Story.”



Among Nicks’ many accomplishments, she started a charity for wounded soldiers called “Stevie Nicks’ Band of Soldiers,” where small, autographed ipods are delivered to returning wounded soldiers with playlists hand-picked by Nicks herself.


She has been a model to many famed female groups and artists such as The Dixie Chicks, Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine, who have named Nicks as inspiration for their artistry.


Presently, fans have the opportunity to cast their votes to induct Nicks into the Hall of Fame through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Dec. 9. You can do this by visiting the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame website and following the link to log in and cast your vote.
