Deal Changes Music Hall Leadership

Gov. Nathan Deal Monday appointed three new members to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Authority Monday.

The three new members are:
- Rose Lane Leavell, a third-generation tree farmer from Twiggs County;
- Dr. Timothy Stapleton, a Macon orthopedist; and
- Charley Humbard, an Atlantan who is the CEO of the Gospel Music Channel.

The board has been at a stalemate on what to do about the future of the Macon museum, which will lose state funding at the end of June.

Athens, Dunwoody, Macon and Woodstock are vying to house the museum.

The board’s next vote is set for next week with the three new members.
