Dottie was and will be a giant in Gospel Music field. She wrote more than 2,000 songs. She wrote such Gospel classic as "WE SHALL BEHOLD HIM" "SHELTERED IN THE ARMS OG GOD" "I'VE NEVER BEEN THIS HOMESICK BEFORE" "HE LOOKED BEYOND MY FAULT AND SAW MY NEEDS" and a couple mother songs "BUILD MY MANSION" and "MAMA'S TEACHING ANGELS HOW TO SING."

Dottie your pain and heartache is over you are home with the one you wrote about and worshipped so much.

We will miss you.

Dottie Rambo Inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall Of Fame

Film star and friend Lily Tomlin welcomed Dottie into the Kentucky Music Hall Of Fame with an introduction equal to a Kennedy Center Honor. Speaking eloquently Tomlin covered most of Rambos career with dignity and honor. Adding humor to her introduction Tomlin broke into her character of Ernestine The Phone Operator (Dottie's favorite of Lily's characters) with a phone call to the Lord asking him to look after our Dottie.
After Tomlin's introduction Dottie performed "I've Never Been This Homesick Before" to a very excited crowd that included a list of who's who in Kentucky music alumni.

The entire cast performed a finale of the old hymn "I'll Fly Away".
