Hall Of Fame Elects New Members

Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, The Statler Brothers and the late legendary pioneer Ernest "Pop" Stoneman will become the new members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The announcement was made Tuesday, Feb. 12, at a ceremony at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Emmylou, the CMA Female Vocalist of the Year in 1980, becomes the fourth artist named in the "Career Achieved National Prominence Between 1957 and the Present" category, which was created in 2005. Due to a tie, both Tom T. and the Statler Brothers will be inducted in the "Career Achieved National Prominence Between World War II and 1975" category. "Pop" Stoneman, who led The Stonemans family band to national acclaim, will be inducted in the "Career Achieved National Prominence Prior to World War II" category, which is awarded every third year. The four new members will be officially inducted later this year during the Country Music Hall of Fame Formal Induction and Medallion Ceremony at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
