What they mean to me: The Judds were a huge staple of country music when I was growing in Kentucky, and my first concert was Wynonna Judd. Her tone is truly second to none. I belted out songs in my bedroom many nights trying to be her!
What Wynonna Judd has meant to my career: Hearing the distinctiveness of her tone really influenced my discovery of where my voice "sits" best. She has this huskiness to her voice, and I really believe a lot of the reason my tone is a bit husky is because I sang so many of her songs growing up!
Why I picked the song: I used to cover it when I played shows growing up in Kentucky, so it has nostalgic meaning to me. It has every element of what a country song should be: killer melody, killer groove, killer lyrics. That guitar lick is money!
My favorite museum artifacts: When I appeared in a video series for the museum, I got to see two artifacts that will always be the most special to me: Dolly Parton's original written lyrics to "Jolene" and one of Skeeter Davis' performance dresses (my grandpa Pearce used to date her!).

Miranda Lambert, honoring songwriter John Prine
Song: "That's the Way the World Goes 'Round" performed on John Prine's guitar custom-made by David Russell Young
What Prine means to me: He set my world on fire — really, all of ours. You would be hard-pressed to find any singer-songwriter in Nashville who wasn't influenced by his writing.
What Prine has meant to my career: Throughout my 18 years in this industry, John's songs have been a guiding light that I've turned to frequently when I write. He was not only an inspiration but also an aspiration.
Why I picked the song: It's my favorite John Prine song. I have the lyrics engraved in my firepit at home, and I used it to open my "Livin' Like Hippies" tour back in 2018. It is a song that continually resonates throughout my life.
What playing Prine's guitar means to me: It is sacred. To be able to sing this song with his guitar is an honor and a memory I will cherish forever.
My favorite museum artifact: One of my favorites is the original manuscript for "Angel from Montgomery," which was on display during the 2014 John Prine exhibit. That song is gospel for us songwriters.

Tenille Townes, honoring Dolly Parton
Song: "Coat of Many Colors" (performed during pre-show)
Transfers provide at least some Ivy presence this season
Although the Ivy League won’t have a basketball season, a few of its most notable recent performers will be playing this year for new schools in different conferences. Former Harvard stars Bryce Aiken and Seth Towns, as well as ex-Yale standout Jordan Bruner, left as graduate transfers. Aiken headed to Seton Hall, Towns joined No. 23 Ohio State and Bruner opted to finish his career in Alabama. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to be here and have a potential season,” Aiken said during the Big East media event before the Ivy League officially pulled the plug on its 2020-21 season due to the coronavirus pandemic. © Provided by Associated Press File-This Feb.
Why I picked the song: It's my grandparents' favorite song of all time. Dolly Parton is a hero to me, this was one of the first songs I learned how to play, and I played it with my pépère. This song embodies so much about my grandparents' character. They are really the kind of people who can make something beautiful out of nothing, never worrying about what anyone else says or thinks about it, and who always see love as the greatest thing.
What Dolly Parton has meant to me: I grew up listening to music with my family, mostly on road trips. Dolly Parton was our favorite. There wasn't a time that we heard "Coat of Many Colors" when I didn't see tears welling up in my pépère's eyes. It always led to stories from them about what it was like growing up on their farms, and my mémère told me about the clothes that her mom made out of scraps of fabric, just like the song. It made me feel like Dolly was singing right to her and singing about a piece of my history.
What Dolly Parton has meant to my career: She is an incredible role model as an artist. As an entertainer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and most of all to me, a songwriter, she sets the ultimate bar. She gives me courage to tell a story in a song, to talk about how I feel, and to be continually writing.
Pfizer to seek approval from FDA 'within days' after further analysis finds COVID-19 vaccine 95% effective
Pfizer and BioNTech are expected to produce up to 50 million doses globally in 2020 and up to 1.3 billion doses by the end of 2021. The news comes days after Moderna, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotechnology company, announced early Monday its candidate vaccine, mRNA-1273, developed in collaboration with the U.S. government, appeared to be 94.5% effective against COVID-19.
My favorite museum artifact: Mother Maybelle Carter's guitar. Every time I walk by it, I smile and think about the foundations of country music that were brought to life by the hands that played that instrument. In so many ways, it is a piece of all of our histories.
Ricky Skaggs, honoring "father of bluegrass" Bill Monroe
Song: "Heavy Traffic Ahead" on Monroe's Gibson F-5 mandolin (with Marty Stuart on Lester Flatt's guitar and Allison Brown on Earl Scruggs' banjo).
Previous experience with the mandolin: When I was 6 years old, I played with Mr. Monroe and his band, the Bluegrass Boys, at the Martha High School in Martha, Kentucky. I'd been playing in the Skaggs Family Band for a year around eastern Kentucky with my dad and mother. During the concert, someone in the audience started yelling out to "let little Ricky Skaggs get up and do a song." Mr. Monroe didn't pay any attention to the man and did another song. After that song ended, the man shouted out again. I was so embarrassed I slid down in my seat, but then Mr. Monroe started calling my name, and I had to go up to the stage. He reached down, grabbed me by the arm, lifted me up on stage and asked me what I played. I said, "the mandolin," and he responded with a chuckle. So, he pulled his mandolin off his shoulder and put it around me. He tightened the strap around me and the mandolin to make sure we both fit each other. I did a song called "Ruby, Are You Mad at Your Man?" Thank God the band knew it. The mandolin that I played in 1959 is the same mandolin that's in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and it's the same one I'm playing on the show. Pretty crazy!
Why I picked the song: Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys recorded "Heavy Traffic Ahead" in 1946 in Columbia Studios in Chicago. It was the first bluegrass song ever recorded. I just felt that it was appropriate to do that song with Lester Flatt's guitar and Earl Scruggs' banjo, because they were a part of the Bluegrass Boys at the time it was recorded.
My favorite museum artifacts: Mr. Monroe's mandolin and Maybelle Carter's Gibson L-5 guitar. These two instruments helped to create bluegrass music, and with the Carter Family, Maybelle Carter's guitar helped to create country music.
Brad Paisley, honoring Buck Owens and his guitarist, Don Rich
Song: "Buckaroo" with Paisley on Rich's 1964 Fender Telecaster and Dan Tyminski on Owens' red, white and blue American acoustic guitar
What Owens means to me: Buck became a very dear friend to me and one of the most meaningful to my career. He was everything I dreamed he would be and more: eccentric, loud, charming, larger than life, funny and above all, generous.
What Rich means to me: He was part of a very rare breed — one of the pioneers of the Fender Telecaster. Take a listen to Buck's Carnegie Hall Concert album from 1966, my favorite album of all time. Don is so fiery and so creative on this album — and on everything he did — that it still sounds fresh a half-century later.
What Owens and Rich have meant to my career: More than anything, falling in love with the music of Buck Owens and the Buckaroos widened my understanding of music by introducing me to the very aggressive, really twangy Telecaster sound that Buck championed, along with Don, the resident guitar god in his groundbreaking band. Buck's sound was always so infectious and his and Don's two-part harmony was stunning and powerful. Buck's music sounded like heaven to my ears, and maybe a little bit of hell, too.
Carlene Carter, honoring 'Mother' Maybelle Carter
Song: "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" performed on Carter's Gibson L-5 guitar
What Maybelle Carter means to me: I'll admit that I'm a huge fan. Of course, the fact that she is my grandmother is ultra-special icing on the cake. She and my great-aunt Sara were the first women admitted into the Hall of Fame and the Carter Family was the first group admitted. They were trailblazers of the first order.
What Carter has meant to my career: Just about everything. If there hadn't been Mother Maybelle, there wouldn't have been June Carter, and there wouldn’t have been me! Grandma was so accessible and approachable, and there was nothing I couldn't ask as far as learning how to play and everything else.
What playing her guitar means: It's an indescribable thrill and honor that is difficult to express in words. She was really proud of that guitar. She bought it in 1928 for $275, and that was a lot of money, so in a way, she invested in it. It truly has her soul in it, so to be able to connect with my grandmother's spirit again through that cherished instrument after all this time is kind of overwhelming.
Previous experience with the guitar: Yes, of course, I tried to play it as a child. I thought it was so big and hard to play, but now that I'm (sort of) grown up, it seems to fit very well. I finally grew into it!
Why I picked the song: It's the obvious choice, especially in the Hall of Fame [where the lyrics are inscribed in the rotunda]. That song is what the Hall of Fame stands for in a certain way.
Favorite museum artifact: My grandmother's guitar is the obvious choice, and I'm so proud that it occupies such a place of honor. I really can't get over the fact that people I'm related to in such a deep way — including my daddy, Carl Smith, my mom, my aunts, my grandmother and "Big John" Cash — hold such special places in the museum and in my heart. Sometimes I marvel at the fact that, in some way, I'm part of this. It's more special than I can describe.
Cherry is the author of Hair Love, as well writer and co-director of the short animated film based on the book that won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film at this year's ceremony.
Hair Love tells the touching story of a Black father who learns how to do his young daughter's hair while his wife is in the hospital. As the young protagonist soon finds out, her father isn't quite sure what to do with her locks — but they work together to find a solution.
"I liked the idea of something that was centered around a Black family, because so often you don't see that in animation," Cherry, a former pro football player, told the Los Angeles Times in February.
In his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards that same month, he said, "I just want to say that Hair Love was done because we wanted to see more representation in animation — we wanted to normalize Black hair." © Provided by People MARK RALSTON/AFP via Getty Karen Rupert Toliver (L) and Matthew A. Cherry accept the award for Best Animated Short Film for Hair Love at the 92nd Oscars on Feb. 9, 2020

Beyoncé, 39, recently spoke to British Vogue for her December cover story, revealing that she and Blue (who starred alongside her mom in the "Brown Skin Girl" music video and sings on the track) have a special relationship when it comes to celebrating each other's accomplishments.
"When I tell her I'm proud of her, she tells me that she's proud of me and that I'm doing a good job. It's teeeeeew much sweetness," the "Formation" singer said. "She melts my heart. I believe the best way to teach [my kids] is to be the example." © Allen Berezovsky/Getty Blue Ivy Carter
Beyoncé — who also shares twins Rumi and Sir, 3, with JAY-Z, 50 — additionally spoke with the magazine about why she has felt a calling to help elevate Black (and specifically, African) voices, saying that "something cracked open inside" of her after Blue was born in January 2012.
"From that point on, I truly understood my power, and motherhood has been my biggest inspiration. It became my mission to make sure she lived in a world where she feels truly seen and valued. I was also deeply inspired by my trip to South Africa with my family," she added.
