London: American singer Kenny Rogers has said that he is "very excited" to learn that he has been selected to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.

"I think it`s so cool," the BBC quoted him as saying in a personal message posted on video sharing site YouTube.

The 74-year-old performer said that he is glad that it happened before he died.

Singer Bobby Bare and producer `Cowboy` Jack Clement are also going to be inducted into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony later this year.

The new inductees will bring the membership of the Hall of Fame, founded in 1961, to 121.
