Delmore Room, Brewer Library, Calhoun Community College
Displays contain artifacts and memorabilia from Alton and Rabon Delmore. During their career, the Delmore Brothers from Limestone County wrote more than one thousand songs and are remembered as country music pioneers known for their close harmony and bluesy music and vocals. Members of the Grand Ole Opry from 1923-1938, they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame (2001) and elected to the Nashville Songwriters's Hall of Fame (1971). Their 1949 hit song, "Blues Stay Away From Me," is regarded by some as an early example of rock and roll.
