Country music star Carrie Underwood was one of three performers inducted Thursday into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. The concert and ceremony took place in Muskogee, and The Oklahoman photographer Bryan Terry captured several great shots of the event.
Also inducted into the state Music Hall of Fame Thursday were Rocky Frisco, a longtime J.J. Cale keyboardist, and Western swing yodeler Ramona Reed. C.H. Parker, longtime music instructor and director at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, received the Governor’s Award.
