Country Music People, a British country music magazine, has named what it says are the 10 new inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame. A spokesperson for the Country Music Association, which oversees election to the Hall of Fame, says the list is "speculative, and it is not CMA policy to comment on speculation."
Names appearing on the list are the Delmore Brothers, the Everly Brothers, Don Gibson, Homer & Jethro, Waylon Jennings, the Jordanaires, Don Law, the Louvin Brothers, Ken Nelson and Webb Pierce.
Country Music International, another British publication, has also published the list. Ten new members of the Country Music Hall of Fame were to be named around the time of the opening of the new Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on May 17 in Nashville with formal induction to take place as part of grand opening ceremonies, the CMA announced in December. No further announcement was made when the Hall of Fame opened.
"The official list of names of those to be inducted into the Hall of Fame has not been released yet," the CMA spokesperson says. "Plans are to release the list in August."
