NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Ronnie Milsap, Mac Wiseman and the late Hank Cochran are the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
The 2014 induction class was introduced by Kix Brooks during a news conference Tuesday at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
They will be inducted this year.
I anticipated and hoped for it a long time, Wiseman said of his selection in the veterans era category. This is the biggest thing that’s ever happened to me in my 70-odd years. Being in the same categories with all the greats over the years, I’m just really flattered.
Milsap is being inducted in the modern era category, and Cochran will be inducted in the songwriter category.
