There is no one more deserving of induction into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame than Harry Chapin. Harry died 6 days before I was born, but his music is eternal. I first heard Harry from my father. And now, my daughter loves his music just as I do. During his short time on this Earth, he was a brilliant songwriter and inspiring humanitarian whose words, music and spirit will live for generations to come.

I'm from Mr. Tanner's hometown, and Harry is still the BEST after all these years. I'm still hooked on Harry, and have all of his T-shirts, and the Chapin memorabilia.

So many reasons. He wrote songs that told stories and had heroes and antiheroes. Great story telling. Sang about the average man. Mail order Annie is a history lesson.

I actually fixed his coffee for him while catering a party for a nursery school. He sat down in front of fireplace and played guitar and sang Cats in the Cradle before ever heard. He was very talented, Such a loss for all.

I’m signing this because it’s the right thing to do and a way of saying thank you for all the music he gave to me.
