Cash, DeGarmo & Key to Join Gospel Hall

The Man in Black leads latest group to be inducted into Gospel Music Hall of Fame

Johnny Cash and DeGarmo & Key will be inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame in January, the GMA Foundation announced today. "The impact this group of individuals has made on gospel music is immeasurable," said Ed Harper, chairman of the GMA Foundation.

Cash, who died in 2003, was quite vocal about his faith in the final decades of his life, and recorded a number of gospel albums including Man in White, My Mother's Hymn Book, and Cash: Ultimate Gospel.

The D&K induction will be bittersweet, since Key passed away in June.

Other January inductees will include Golden Gate Quartet and Bill "Hoss" Allen, it was announced. For the full press release, click here.
