Kenny Rogers and Bobby Bare are just two of the iconic names that have been selected for induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The announcement was made Wednesday at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Nashville. Rogers and Bare will be joined by Jack Clement who is also set to be inducted into the Country Hall of Fame.

The trio of legendary country music crooners will be apart of the hall of fame during a special ceremony that is slated to take place later this year.

A native of Houston, Rogers was elected in the modern era category for artists who become eligible for induction 20 years after they receive national prominence.

Bare will be inducted in the veterans era category as he fits the bill for an artist who is eligible for inclusion 45 years after achieving national prominence.

Producer and writer Clement was elected in the non-performer category for artists who were active prior to 1980.

Kenny Rogers is known for classic songs such as “The Gambler” and “Lady”. Bobby Bare’s “Detroit City”, “500 Miles” and “Dropkick Me Jesus” have seen their fair share of play all throughout the country.
