Billy Ray Cyrus is being honored by his home state.
In 2018, the singer will be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame.
“It’s been a long journey since those days of growing up in Flatwoods, Kentucky,” Billy Ray said. “For me, getting the chance to be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame just brings it all full circle.”
Former honorees include Loretta Lynn, Bill Monroe and the Osborne Brothers. Also being inducted in 2018 will be Jason Crabb, Jackie DeShannon, Dale Ann Bradley, Bobby Lewis and David “Stringbean” Akeman.
The ceremony will take place May 11, 2018 at the Center For Rural Development in Somerset, Kentucky.
