The Gospel Music Hall of Fame announced new inductees into its ranks, including Michael W. Smith, Dolly Patron, Dr. Bobby Jones, The Dixie Hummingbirds and Lari Goss.

The inspiration of gospel music doesn't belong only in church. This award is the gospel community's way of honoring the pioneers and saying, 'Well done,' said John W. Styll, president and CEO of the Gospel Music Association Foundation.

The ceremony will take place on February 2 in Nashville.
