NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Ronnie Milsap, Mac Wiseman and Hank Cochran are the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The trio was unveiled Tuesday during a news conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tenn.
The multidimensional Milsap has transcended genres, but his most powerful moments have come in country music, where he won a string of major awards in the 1970s, including Grammys and the Country Music Association's entertainer of the year. Wiseman was an original member of Flatt and Scruggs' Foggy Mountain Boys. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut with Bill Monroe.
Cochran, who died in 2010, is being inducted posthumously in the songwriter category.
They will be inducted later this year.
