Three more country music heroes are set to be enshrined in Nashville.

Alan Jackson, Jerry Reed and Don Schlitz will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame later this year. The 2017 inductees were announced earlier this month.

Even casual country music fans likely know Jackson's library of hits, while fans of '60s and '70s country know Reed's work. And even if you don't know Schlitz by name, you definitely know a handful of the songs he's written since the late 1970s.

Induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame is considered one of the greatest honors in country music.

We've put together a few playlists of the best tracks from all three men to help you brush up on the Country Music Hall of Fame's 2017 class. Listen below with a free Spotify account.
