Ricky Skaggs, the late Dottie West and instrumentalist Johnny Gimble have been elected the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The Country Music Association hosted Tuesday’s (March 27) announcement with Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood 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.
Skaggs will be inducted in the modern era artist category, West will be inducted posthumously in the veterans era artist category and Gimble will be inducted posthumously in the recording and/or touring musician category.
Skaggs, West and Gimble will increase membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame from 133 to 136 members.
