Kenny Rogers inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame
London: Kenny Rogers, Bobby Bare and the late Jack Clement are the newest additions in Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
The three country greats were officially inducted at a ceremony, which was attended by Garth Brooks, Kris Kristofferson and Barry Gibb, for their influence on modern country music, the BBC reported.
While Rogers, whose biggest hits include `Lucille` and `Islands in the Stream`, called the honour the "culmination" of his career, Bare, the `How I Got to Memphis` hit maker, said that his induction meant that he will forever be referred to as a hall of famer.
Fellow inductee Clement, who died from liver cancer in August 2013, had found out 5 months earlier that he would be honoured as a producer, songwriter and performer, having penned some of Johnny Cash`s early hits.
