A medallion ceremony wrapped up for the newest Country Music Hall of Fame inductees.

It was a great night on Sunday for many as Fred Foster, Charlie Daniels, and Randy Travis all finally received their medallions and plaques as they officially became a part of the Country Music Hall of Fame.



To recognize these three men several singers came on stage to perform and talk about what it was like growing up and working alongside them.

Dolly Parton sang Dumb Blonde, Trace Adkins sang the Devil Went Down to Georgia, and Garth Brooks and Brad Paisley also performed.



Vince Gill introduced Fred Foster, Brenda Lee introduced Charlie Daniels, and Garth Brooks introduced Randy Travis.

All three inductees spoke on the red carpet and said they were very thankful to be recognized once again.

"Unbelievable,” Foster said. “I never dreamed about this, and it never entered my mind that I would ever be in the Hall of Fame.”

“The big thing to me is so many of my heroes that are hanging in here that I have listened to all my life and I have admired in my life, to think that my likeness and my plaque will hang it perpetuity in the Country Music Hall of Fame, I can't hardly say it, the Country Music Hall of Fame,” Daniels said. “It's a pretty strong thing.”

“But when he was elected and when they told him, I saw I could see and hear in his voice that he knew he had made it,” Mary Travis said about Randy.



They all made it indeed, and as for a fun fact, all three men were born and raised in North Carolina.

They said they’re just thankful to be able to join such great company.
