THE HITMEN, classic rock’s unique Supergroup of legendary sidemen, are the 2019 recipients of Nashville’s Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum™ first-ever Road Warriors Award, given to them to honor “their years of dedication to the music, and the countless miles … that they have traveled in delivering so many hits throughout the world.” “20 Feet from Stardom” for most of their careers, THE HIT MEN are a new “Wrecking Crew” for the Next Generation. These five brilliant musicians recorded and/or toured with the artists whose hits they play – including the biggest names in rock history from Paul McCartney and Elton John, to Frankie Valli, Foreigner, The Who, Toto, Carole King, Cat Stevens, Jim Croce, The Rascals and more. They’re the Real Deal, appearing on some 85 albums, many of them gold and platinum! They are the actual artists you heard in concert and on the original versions of classic rock’s most important songs.
