NASHVILLE, May 18 (UPI) -- Barbara Mandrell was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.

Also inducted during Sunday night's event were Roy Clark and Charlie McCoy.

Performers included Garth Brooks, Alison Krauss, Reba McEntire, George Jones, Michael McDonald, Rodney Crowell, Josh Turner, Jelly Roll Johnson and Louise Mandrell.

"Irby Mandrell was my manager as well as my Daddy over my 38-year career. He taught me, guided me and directed me. It is his name, Mandrell, that I am blessed to have, and it's the gracious loving public and fans that made our name known and popular," Barbara Mandrell told the audience at the ceremony. "So, tonight I thank you with my entire being for putting the Mandrell name into the Hall of Fame."

Mandrell was officially inducted by her longtime friend Ralph Emery.

"You've done country music proud in every way," Emery told her.

The induction ceremony ended as Mandrell, Clark and McCoy were joined by other Country Music Hall of Fame members in attendance as they sang "Will the Circle Be Unbroken."
