Country Music Hall of Fame Inducts Their Latest Class

The Country Music Hall of Fame held its Medallion Ceremony last night, inducting this year's honorees into the HOF, including Alan Jackson, in the “Modern Era Artist” category, Jerry Reed, in the “Veterans Era Act” category, and songwriter Don Schlitz, in the “Songwriter” category.

George Strait, Loretta Lynn and Connie Smith all joined Alan for a performance of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” during the ceremony, while George was also on hand to sing Alan’s “Remember When,” LeAnn Womack performed “Here in the Real World” and Alison Krauss performed “Someday.” Loretta, who suffered a stroke in May, also spoke on behalf of Alan during the ceremony.

Meanwhile, Mary Chapin Carpenter paid tribute to Schlitz, performing “When You Say Nothing at All,” while Vince Gill and Aloe Blacc performed “The Gambler." Finally, Reed’s daughters Lottie Zavala and Seidina Hubbard attended the ceremony to accept the HOF plaque on behalf of their late father, while Ray Stevens paid tribute to him with a performance of “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot” and Jamey Johnson performed “East Bound and Down.”
