Country Music Hall of Fame to Finally Announce 2021 Inductees

It’s been a very long time coming. But the Country Music Hall of Fame has finally announced when they will reveal the newest inductees. They will be revealed on Monday, August 16th at 10 a.m. Central. Hosted by Hall of Famer Reba McEntire, the unveiling will stream via the embedded video player below.

Though country fans got used to Hall of Fame inductees being announced in the spring most every year in recent memory, due to COVID-19, they were pushed back to August 12th in 2020. That’s right, the last class was revealed a year ago today, so this year’s announcement isn’t too far off the new COVID-era timeline.

There will be three new inductees announced in three distinct categories: Modern Era, Veterans Era, and the “Non-Performer, Songwriter, and Recording and/or Touring Musician” category, which this year will focus on a recording or touring musician.

Last year’s inductees of Marty Stuart in the Modern Era, Hank Williams Jr. in the Veterans Era, and Dean Dillon in the songwriting category have yet to be officially enshrined at the Hall of Fame in the Medallion Ceremony, which similar to the announcements, has been delayed due to COVID. However, the Medallion Ceremony is finally scheduled to happen on Sunday, November 21 for the 2020 inductees, along with whomever the new inductees are for 2021 in a double ceremony.

Again, you can watch the press conference below, and Saving Country Music will be offering full coverage Monday morning on the new Country Music Hall of Fame inductees.
