The latest inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame have been announced: Ronnie Milsap , Hank Cochran , and Mac Wiseman .  The inductees were revealed Tuesday morning in Nashville.

Soulful keyboardist Milsap, who's blind, was of the biggest crossover country performers of the '70s and '80s, thanks to hits like "I Wouldn't Have Missed It for the World," "(There's) No Gettin' Over Me," "Stranger in My House," "Lost in the Fifties Tonight," and "Any Day Now."  He's won six Grammys and scored forty #1 country hit singles.  Milsap's name was announced by Hunter Hayes .

The late Hank Cochran is the Songwriter inductee this year.  A recording artist in his own right, Cochran also penned hits like Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces," Ray Price's "Make the World Go Away," George Strait's "Ocean Front Property" and "The Chair," and Ronnie Milsap's "Don't You Ever Get Tired (of Hurting Me)."

Mac Wiseman is the Veterans Era inductee this year.  The bluegrass singer is a solo artist, but also served as a member of the Foggy Mountain Boys , along with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs , and played with Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys.    He's nicknamed "The Voice with a Heart."

All three performers will be officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in a ceremony later this year.
