MEMPHIS —The Memphis Music Hall of Fame is scheduled to announce 13 new members who will make up its second class of inductees.
Hall officials will name the 13 inductees in a news conference Tuesday afternoon.
The Hall of Fame inducted its first class of 25 music greats with Memphis ties last November. Rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley, blues guitarist B.B. King and R&B singers Otis Redding and Isaac Hayes were part of the inaugural class.
Inductees are selected by a national committee of authors, music historians, educators and members of the music community.
The hall of fame will honor this year's inductees at a Nov. 7 ceremony.
The Memphis Music Hall of Fame is administered by the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, which was developed by The Smithsonian Institution.
