NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — They were already big names but now they're officially members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The Country Music Association honored its 2019 Hall of Fame class, which included Brooks and Dunn, Ray Stevens, and Jerry Bradley. They were honored at a ceremony at the CMA Theater on Sunday.

Music duo Brooks and Dunn is made up of Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn. They have dominated country charts, scoring more than 40 Top 10 hits.

Music executive and producer Jerry Bradley ran RCA Records for nearly a decade. He will be joining his father Owen and his uncle in the Hall of Fame.

"It feels so good," said Stevens, "This is a long way from when I was playing in my High School gym."

Fans spent the night dancing to music and cheering on those who left a mark on country music and now they'll be enshrined in Country Music history forever.
