Nashville, Tenn. (October 24, 2017) — On Sunday night, October 22, Grammy Award-winning country and comedy music singer Ray Stevens paid tribute to his friend, the legendary Jerry Reed, at the 2017 Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum Medallion Ceremony. The event was held in Nashville at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in the CMA Theater.

To honor Reed, who was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Fame, Stevens performed the country singer's classic hit, "When You're Hot, You're Hot." Alan Jackson and Don Schlitz were also inducted into the 2017 class.

Rolling Stone Country called Stevens' performance one of the 10 best moments of the evening.

Produced by the staff of the museum and generously underwritten by the Country Music Association (CMA), the organization that elects the Hall of Fame members, the Medallion Ceremony honors the inductees by highlighting their life stories, their important turning points, and the breakthrough artistic achievements that elevated their careers. The inductees are celebrated with speeches, live musical tributes and original video biographies, created by the museum staff using old and often rare recorded performances, past televised interviews and historic photos culled from materials collected, stored and digitized in the museum's Frist Library and Archives.
