Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee Lists Bill Monroe for Future Postage Stamp

Bill MonroeJames William Monroe II confirmed with Cybergrass that his grandfather made the January 7th list. The list says confidential and restricted however, a copy is available online. It also comes with a caveat that changes to the list can happen without notice. The Citizen's Stamp Advisory Committee cataloged Monroe as an "approved subject" with a distribution year yet to be determined. Tagged "Music Icons: Bill Monroe", the Father of Bluegrass Music's stamp is not yet in development nor has a design been approved. Monroe is listed with other icons including Jim Morrison, Tammy Wynette, "Fats" Waller, Freddie Fender, John Lennon and others. Icons already approved include Roy Orbison and Sarah Vaughn.
