Earl Scruggs

Banjo legend Earl Scruggs and country music ambassador Dolly Parton are among the artists who’ve been tapped to enter the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame in Wilkesboro, N.C., when the Wilkes Heritage Museum holds an induction ceremony June 13.

Established in 2006, the Hall of Fame recognizes artists who’ve contributed to the area’s artistic and cultural heritage, which is closely associated with country music. Others in the class of inductees include the pioneering trio the Carter Family, Grammy-winning acoustic musician Doc Watson, old-time fiddler Tommy Jarrell and Ralph Rinzler, who managed the late Bill Monroe. Also being honored are David Johnson, Ralph Epperson, Wayne Henderson and Sam Love Queen Jr.

The induction ceremony is in conjunction with a new exhibit of the same title, "Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame." For more information, visit wilkesheritagemuseum.com.
