Country Music Hall of Fame Induction
CMA's Country Music Hall of Fame
CMA created the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961 to recognize individuals for their outstanding contributions to the format with Country Music’s highest honor. Inductees are chosen by CMA’s Hall of Fame Panels of Electors, which consist of anonymous voters appointed by the CMA Board of Directors. There will be 121 members of the Country Music Hall of Fame later in 2013 when Bobby Bare, Kenny Rogers and Cowboy Jack Clement are inducted.
Members are inducted at a special Medallion Ceremony at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in the Ford Theater. During the Medallion Ceremony, friends and colleagues pay tribute to each inductee through words and song. The inductee's bronze plaque is unveiled that will be on display in the Museum's rotunda.
