Broadcasters receive induction

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 – Country Radio Broadcasters inducted the 2010 class of the Country Music DJ and Radio Hall of Fame last night at a special ceremony at the Nashville Convention Center.

Bill Bailey, Laurie DeYoung and Rudy Fernandez are the 2010 Country Music DJ inductees, while Dan Halyburton, Mike Hammond and Cy Blumenthal (posthumous) are the Country Radio inductees.

The inductions occurred at the dinner and awards ceremony that unofficially kicks off Country Radio Seminar each year.

Brooks & Dunn took home the CRB Career Achievement Award, and Charlie Cook received the CRB President's Award.

Dierks Bentley was on hand with members of the McCoury family to perform a special acoustic version of Brooks & Dunn's Red Dirt Road. The surprise of the evening was an appearance by Taylor Swift, who introduced Radio Hall of Famer Mike Hammond.
