Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, the first induction certificate was issued on November 16, 1997, for singer Gene Vincent. The creation of Bob Timmers, the not-for-profit entity maintains a website that is supported in part by the fans and artists of the music it represents. The site has a UK representative (Rod Pyke) and Canadian representative (Johnny Vallis). Over 5,000 "legends"[2] are listed on the web site, and about 400 have been "inducted".[3] Inductions are restricted to artists with notable performances prior to (and including) 1962.[3] The web site features news updates, artist profile pages, performer tribute pages, videos, photos, and feature columns.

Among honorees are pioneer singers, songwriters, disc jockeys, and promoters/producers such as Sun Records owner Sam Phillips.[3]

The foundation became inactive in 2018. Founder Bob Timmers died on March 22, 2022, however, the Rockabilly Hall of Fame Museum™️ has absorbed all of Timmers works and are continuing on to give this roots music genre it’s rightful place in American music history![4]
