NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kenny Rogers, Bobby Bare and the late "Cowboy" Jack Clement — three men whose influence still ripples across the surface of modern music — are now members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The three were saluted by stars including Garth Brooks, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris and Barry Gibb during a ceremony Sunday at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Each of the three inductees had a profound effect on music in his own way, and one could argue each deserved a place among the genre's greatest names long ago. Rogers helped push country music farther into pop music than it had ever been. And Bare and Clement, who passed away earlier this year just a few months after learning of his induction, were as influential behind the scenes as under the spotlight.
