NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tom T. Hall and the Statler Brothers were formally inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame with a musical tribute.

Spokeswoman Tina Wright says the two-hour ceremony was held Sunday at the hall.

This year's two other inductees - Emmylou Harris and Ernest "Pop" Stoneman - were formally inducted in April.

Bobby Bare, Heather Berry & Tony Mabe and Michelle Nixon saluted Hall, while Reba McEntire, Daily & Vincent and Grandstaff honored the Statler Brothers.

Vince Gill, Amy Grant and the Jordanaires performed the traditional opening hymn.

Television and radio personality Ralph Emery presented Hall with his medal. Brenda Lee did the same for the Statler Brothers.

Both Hall and the Statlers performed during the ceremony.
