Vince Gill, singer-songwriter Mel Tillis and TV personality Ralph Emery will receive a huge honor from Country Music Association by being inducted to its Hall of Fame.

Three country icons have been selected to be the inductees of this year's Country Music Hall of Fame. Musician Vince Gill, singer-songwriter Mel Tillis and TV personality Ralph Emery are all slated to attend the induction ceremony in October.

The trio were chosen by Country Music Association's Hall of Fame Panel of Electors that has 300 members appointed by CMA boards of directors. Their names were announced on Tuesday (August 7) by Brenda Lee, Barbara Mandrell and Hall of Fame director Kyle Young, who were also celebrating Tillis' one-day-ahead 75th birthday.

The ceremony which will be in coincidence to Country Music Association Awards night that will take place formally in October.

Gill admitted to being elated receiving the honor "Out of all the things you've ever done - it just matters, it matters so much," he said. "It's been an amazing journey since I learned to play `Wildwood Flower' on the guitar.

Meanwhile, Tillis revealed that he literally dropped his eggplant upon hearing the news while gardening. Same case happened to Emery who is selected for the non-performer category. "I never thought I'd be in the Country Music Hall of Fame, at least not in my lifetime," he said.
