Memphis Music Hall of Fame to name new class

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- 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.
