The hall's newest members are being honored Sunday in a musical salute featuring Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, George Jones, Alison Krauss and many more.

Mandrell's many hits include "Midnight Oil," "Sleeping Single in a Double Bed" and "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool."

In 1980 she joined sisters Louise and Irlene to host "Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters" on NBC.

McCoy is best known for his harmonica work and has recorded with many well-known artists.
