A MUSICIAN who was too shy to perform publicly is being lined up for entry into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

When crofter Thomas Fraser, from Shetland, died 26 years ago he left more than 1000 country and blues songs on reel-to-reel tapes.

They lay gathering dust until his grandson Karl Simpson discovered them.

He had the songs remastered and released, drawing worldwide acclaim.

Now Karl is to talk at a country event in Nashville, Tennessee, leading to claims Thomas may be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
