Two legendary vocalists and one of Nashville’s most prolific and profound songwriters will take their place in the Country Music Hall of Fame later this year.
Patty Loveless, Tanya Tucker and Bob McDill are the Hall’s 2023 inductees, the Country Music Association announced Monday.
Loveless and Tucker were selected for the annual “Modern Era Artist” and “Veteran Era Artist” categories, respectively. McDill was selected in the “Songwriter” category, which rotates with “Recording/Touring Musician” and “Non-Performer” categories each year.
Their induction will raise the total number of members to 152. Inductees are voted on by CMA’s Hall of Fame Panels of Electors, an anonymous body chosen by the CMA Board of Directors.
