My ol' Kentucky home.
From the unadorned and untrained mountain music performed on front porches to the refined and ever-expanding boundaries of today's sounds, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame will once again honor all forms of Kentucky music at the Induction Ceremony on April 10, 2015 at Lexington Center's Bluegrass Ballroom.
As varied as Kentucky's scenic landscapes, the 2015 honorees include: Country duo Montgomery Gentry; Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys; singer-songwriter Larry Cordle; artist management icon Clarence Spalding; country comedian, songwriter, musician and broadcaster Pete Stamper; Kentucky legend Doc Hopkins; and pioneer R&B group The Moonglows.
The 2015 induction class will join other Kentucky native music professionals to be honored for their contribution to music in the state of Kentucky and around the world. Tickets for this prestigious induction ceremony are currently on sale. For more information on the 2015 Kentucky Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, please visit kentuckymusicmuseum.com.
