NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Fiddler Charlie Daniels, singer Randy Travis, and producer and label owner Fred Foster will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The announcement was made Tuesday by the Hall of Fame, along with the Country Music Association, at a press conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

Travis, who is recovering from a stroke suffered in 2013, is a seven-time Grammy winner whose hits include “Forever and Ever, Amen.” Daniels is the master fiddler behind “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Foster helped launch the careers of Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.

They will be inducted during a ceremony later this year.
