Works from Willie Nelson and Hank Williams are among the list of recordings selected as 2015 Grammy Hall of Fame inductees.

‘Stardust,’ Nelson’s 1978 standards album, will enter the Hall of Fame, along with ‘Honky Tonkin,’ the 1947 single from Williams and His Drifting Cowboys.

The Grammy Hall of Fame honors songs and albums that are over 25 years old and had a significant historical or cultural impact. Almost 1,000 titles are currently on display as part of the Hall of Fame at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, Calif.

Twenty-seven new titles join the list this year; other inductees include Bob Wills‘ 1939 single ‘San Antonio Rose;’ the 1989 album ‘Nick of Time’ by Bonnie RaittBob Dylan‘s 1975 album ‘Blood on the Tracks;’ and Neil Young‘s ‘Harvest’ album from 1972.

“With recordings dating as early as 1909 through the late ’80s, this year’s Grammy Hall of Fame entries not only represent a diverse collection of influential and historically significant recordings, but also reflect the changing climate of music through the decades,” says Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy. “These memorable, inspiring and iconic recordings are proudly added to our growing catalog — knowing that they have become a part of our musical, social and cultural history.”
