Brooks & Dunn, Ray Stevens and music executive Jerry Bradley have been elected the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The Country Music Association hosted Monday’s announcement at the Hall of Fame Rotunda. The formal induction will take place later this year during an invitation-only Medallion Ceremony at the CMA Theater.
Brooks & Dunn will be inducted in the modern era artist category, Stevens will be inducted in the veterans era artist category and music executive Bradley will be inducted in the non-performer category.
Brooks & Dunn, Stevens and Bradley will increase membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame from 136 to 139 members.
