Kenny Rogers, Bobby Bare and Jack Clement to Be Inducted Into Country Music Hall of Fame
'I Can't Unlove You' singer Rogers, 'The All-American Boy' hitmaker Bare and 'It'll Be Me' writer Clement will receive country music's highest honor later this year in Nashville, Tennessee.


Kenny Rogers, Bobby Bare, and "Cowboy" Jack Clement are going to be the newest Country Music Hall of Famers, joining previous inductees Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks and 116 other members. The three chart-topping country artists will be inducted in a ceremony that will take place later this year at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.

Rogers, the eight-best-selling male artist of all time, will be inducted to the Modern Era Artist category. He was able to successfully record singles across different musical genres which brought about the hit song "Lady" with Lionel Richie of the Commodores. Meanwhile, Bare, whose hit "The All-American Boy" became the second biggest single in the U.S. back in December 1959, will be installed into the Veterans Era Artist category.

"This is big - an honor and the validation of a dream, totally unexpected," Bare said, acknowledging the great news. Over on the Non-Performer category which is awarded only every three years, songwriter and producer Clement will soon be officially received into the elite group. His most notable accomplishments would be for his work on some of Johnny Cash's biggest hits "Ballad of a Teenage Queen" and "Guess Things Happen That Way".

"I've been chosen for the Country Music Hall of Fame? I thought I was already in the Hall of Fame," said Clement. "I could have gotten in there any time I wanted. Kyle [Young] gave me a key," he added jokingly, referring to the director of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, who leads the ceremony honoring the three artists all born during country music's formative years in the 1930s.
