The Country Music Hall of Fame (CMHOF) in Nashville has announced their three newest inductees this week, and we have photos of the three newest members-to-be. It is hard to believe there were already only about 120 inductees currently hanging on the walls of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, as it seems there should be many more than that amount.
We often hear from some of our friends on Facebook about various country music singers they think should be inducted into the CMHOF. Last year, the three inductees were: Garth Brooks, Hargus “Pig” Robbins and Connie Smith. The first year, 1961, saw Jimmie Rodgers, Fred Rose and Hank Williams as the first three to be inducted.
You can read the full list of inductees at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s webpages. Leave us a note below and tell us which country music artist you think should be inducted next year.
Taken from the CMHOF webpages comes this explanation:
“Rogers will be inducted in the “Modern Era Artist” category, while Bare will be inducted in the “Veterans Era Artist” category. Clement will be inducted in the “Non-Performer” category, which is awarded every third year in a rotation with the “Recording and/or Touring Musician Active Prior to 1980,” and “Songwriter” categories. Bare, Clement, and Rogers will increase membership in the coveted Country Music Hall of Fame from 118 to 121 members.”
