The two-and-a-half-hour private ceremony at the Hall of Fame building in Nashville was attended by family and friends of the inductees. In her acceptance speech, Emmylou saluted everyone who had supported her throughout her career: “They’ve been there since the beginning, and they’re with me still. And now they’re going to be with me up in bronze on the wall.” “Pop” Stoneman, who passed away in 1968, was represented by daughters Donna, Patsy and Roni Stoneman. This year’s other two honorees, Tom T. Hall and the Statler Brothers, will be inducted on June 29.
