Gwinnett County recognizes Skillet Lickers with proclamation

Tuesday afternoon was a very special afternoon for the Skillet Lickers – not only was Phil celebrating his 75th birthday, but the band was also recognized with a very special honor from their beloved home county. Phil and Russ Tanner were on hand at the Gwinnett Board of Commissioners’ Meeting in Lawrenceville as Commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash bestowed a special proclamation upon the group, recognizing their impact on Georgia’s second-largest county and recognizing them for their recent induction into the prestigious Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame.

Many Skillet Licker fans even joined in on the festivities, cheering on the band as the Commissioners recognized the historic group. Watch the entire proclamation presentation below via the Skillet Lickers’ Facebook page:
