Kentucky, which is known as the “Bluegrass State,” is rich in its
musical heritage across all genres including pop, rock, country, Gospel
and folk. Since its founding in 2002, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame has inducted over 40 of Kentucky’s most notable musicians including Dwight Yoakam, Loretta Lynn, Crystal Gayle, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Everly Brothers, Ricky Skaggs, John Conlee, Wynonna and Naomi Judd, Florence Henderson, Patty Loveless and Steve Wariner,
to name a few. The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame provides Kentuckians,
young and old, with a coherent picture of their musical past. The
contribution which Kentucky has made to all genres of American music is
immeasurable. The preservation effort of artifacts and history is
underway. For more information on the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum, please visit: www.kentuckymusicmuseum.com.
