The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation is gearing up for its 38th year of honoring some of the best voices in the music industry. Not only have the inductees been announced but the presenters and performers as well. There are some very nostalgic names added to the list this year.

This year’s inductees include Willie Nelson, George Michael, Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliott, The Spinners, and Rage Against the Machine. In addition, DJ Kool Herc and Link Wray will receive an award for Musical Influence along with Chaka Khan, Al Kooper, and Bernie Taupin for Musical Excellence. Don Cornelius will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award this year.

As far as the presenters and performers go, Stevie Nicks leads the crew which also includes LL COOL J, Ice-T, Common, Carrie Underwood, Adam Levine, Miguel, Queen Latifah, Sia, Chris Stapleton, Dave Matthews, Elton John, H.E.R., Brandi Carlile, St. Vincent, and New Edition.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on Nov. 3, 2023, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and will be available to stream on Disney+. ABC is also airing a primetime special featuring performance highlights, which will be available the next day on Hulu and Disney+. The live ceremony begins at 8 p.m. ET.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame began as a way to honor rock music but has evolved to showcase all different styles and genres. The ceremony got a lot of publicity last year, as country singer Dolly Parton refused the award since she is not typically a rock singer. However, the foundation assured her that they now accept all different kinds of artists. Humble as ever, Parton said she wanted to earn her keep and is set to release a new rock album featuring some iconic artists including Elton John.
