Kenny Rogers, Bobby Bare and Jack Clement are the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame in the US.

The trio of new inductees - who attended a news conference at the Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville - have each made a significant impact in the music world.

Kenny was both a pop crossover and a pop culture sensation in the 1970s and 80s with songs like The Gambler and the Lionel Richie-produced Lady.

Jack, an artist and producer, played a crucial role in the history of music, working as a producer and engineer at Sun Records before moving to Nashville.

And Bobby has veered from country to pop and rock.
