Bill Monroe stamp coming soon?

We hate to sound like a gossip site, but…

It has come to our attention that the United States Postal Service has contracted with an artist to start work on an official Bill Monroe postage stamp.

The Postmaster and the USPS Stamp Committee have been coy in discussing this question with the public, though their most recent statement in a letter to the IBMA in November 2010, seemed to place the Monroe stamp into the realm of the likely.

“I am pleased to inform you Bill Monroe is under consideration by the Committee for possible future stamp issuance. The Committee is responsible for reviewing stamp proposals and making subject and design recommendations to the Postmaster General.”

With this latest bit of information, it would seem that it’s just a matter of time. Yee hah!
