What is an induction ceremony?
Our annual induction ceremonies are a commemorative occasion in which those in the music industry who have made an impact on American Music, are introduced as new members of our Hall of Fame. Inductees that enter the NCMHOF have reached national recognition in their field of at least 10 years and they have roots in North Carolina. The ceremony reflects an awards show format which includes inductees accepting their induction, an insightful history of their careers, and performances by some of the inductees. Living inductees may be in attendance to accept their induction, whereas deceased inductees will have someone accepting on their behalf.
