Artists on the rise were honored at CMT's Next Women of Country induction ceremony.

One of the women included in this year's induction was Logan Brill, who said she was honored to be part of such a great list of women.

"I was so thrilled, honestly, looking at the list of the women who are included in this year's list is amazing. I admire these women so much. So to be included as a peer is really exciting for me. I had to pinch myself a little bit."

CMT Next Women of Country was started in 2013 and is a group of women picked by CMT that they're expecting big things from and who they think can bring a lot to the genre of Country Music.

This year's inductees also included Lucie Silvas, Maggie Rose, Margo Price, Caitlyn Smith, Jamie Lynn Spears, Jillian Jacqueline, Kree Harrison, as well as trios Post Monroe and Runaway June.

At Tuesday's ceremony, women who were featured in previous classes were in attendance to show their support and share stories of success. 

"CMT and Leslie Fram are kind of shining a light on these women who are doing something true to themselves and kind of have been working at it for a while and trying to bring them to a wider audience," said singer/songwriter, Aubrie Sellers.

The CMA awards were set for Wednesday, Nov. 2 at
