Country Music Hall of Fame Sets 2024 Inductee Announcement

The Country Music Association will be announcing the 2024 inductee class to the Country Music Hall of Fame on Monday, March 18th at 10:00 a.m. Central from the Hall of Fame rotunda in Nashville. Hall of Fame inductees Brooks & Dunn will be hosting the announcement, and it will be live streamed on the CMA’s YouTube Channel. You can find an embedded player below.

The Country Music Hall of Fame inductees are selected through a committee process appointed by the Country Music Association (CMA). The selection process has been split up into three categories:

1) Modern Era – Eligible for induction 20 years after they first achieve “national prominence.” 2) Veterans Era – Eligible for induction 40 years after they first achieve “national prominence.” 3) Non-Performer, Songwriter, and Recording and/or Touring Musician active prior to 1980 – Rotates every 3 years. If there is a tie in voting in any category, two names can be selected, as we saw in 2021.

With non-performer Joe Galante selected in 2022, and songwriter Bob McDill selected in 2023, it would be a recording and/or touring musician selected in 2024. Though this could also be a performer, the point of this category is to highlight someone primarily known as a musician, and someone who may not get into the Hall of Fame otherwise.

Since the Country Music Hall of Fame process is secretive, we do not know who is being considered for induction in the three categories. 2023 inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame were Patty Loveless in the Modern Era category, Tanya Tucker in the Veternan’s Era category, and songwriter Bob McDill.

Check back on Monday as Saving Country Music covers the announcement in real time.
