Emmylou Harris, Statler Brothers Inducted Into Hall of Fame
Legendary singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris is among the newest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Harris started her career in folk music but has found success in a number of genres, including rock, alternative, pop, gospel and bluegrass. But it was with country music where she found her identity.
"It's the music that gave me my true voice," said Harris at a press conference announcing her induction.
Tom T. Hall, the Statler Brothers and the late country-bluegrass pioneer Ernest "Pop" Stoneman will also be inducted to the Hall of Fame this year. This is the first year that the honors will not be given during the Country Music Association Awards broadcast. Instead, there will be a separate induction ceremony on April 27.
