Pigeon Forge, TN – In a celebration of country music’s rich history and enduring legacy, the North America Country Music Hall of Fame has announced its esteemed inductees for 2024. Set to take place at the Country Tonite Theatre in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, on Saturday, March 16th, 2024, at 7:00 PM, this event promises to honor true legends who have profoundly influenced the genre.

The upcoming induction ceremony will pay homage to four distinguished artists whose contributions have shaped the landscape of country music for generations to come. Among the honorees are Barbara Fairchild, John Berry, Mel Tillis, and Randy Travis, each recognized for their exceptional talent, impact, and enduring legacy.

John Berry, introduced by Capitol Records in 1994, captured hearts with hits like “Your Love Amazes Me.” Renowned for his rendition of “Oh Holy Night,” Berry’s influence extends beyond chart-toppers. He will be inducted by Ron Meredith, President of Clinton Broadcasters, Inc., and M&M Broadcasting of Knoxville, TN.
