Garth Brooks, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Reed Among Musicians Hall Of Fame 2016 Inductees
The Musicians Hall of Fame have announced that bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs, Garth Brooks and his backing band The G-Men, the late Jerry Reed, and the Sigma Sound Studio Rhythm Section were all in the 2016 class of inductees.
"What an incredible honor it is for me to be inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame," said Skaggs. "Just to be named alongside so many of my musical heroes is really humbling. I'm grateful to all of the musicians who have gone before me and left a trail that I have followed and learned from. I'm so thankful for this honor."
An induction ceremony and concert will be held on Wednesday, October 26, at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Auditorium in downtown Nashville.
Skaggs learned last week that he had also been selected to receive the ASCAP Founders Award this year as well.
