Browns, Sterban Inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame

Congratulations to The Browns and Richard Sterban, who shared the stage with Elvis, on the recent announcement of their induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.


Jim Ed Brown and The Browns, who toured will Elvis, will be inducted into the "Veterans Era Artist" category. The Oak Ridge Boys will be inducted into the "Modern Era Artist" category. Richard Sterban, a member of the Oak Ridge Boys, was also a member of The Stamps, who performed with Elvis.


The official induction ceremony will take place later this year. CMA created the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961 to recognize noteworthy individuals for their outstanding contributions to the format with Country Music's highest honor. Also inducted this year is guitarist Grady Martin.


"Today is an overwhelming day not just for me, but for the Brown family” said Jim Ed Brown. “Receiving this honor with my sisters, Maxine and Bonnie, is something I had dreamed about for years, but never knew if it would happen or not. Fame is fleeting, hit records change every week, award show winners and nominees change every year, but being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame will be forever."


The Country Music Hall of Fame Induction Announcement is below, and Sterban thanks Elvis for his influence at about the 53 minute mark.
