Willie Nelson is nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 2023 induction, along with “If It Makes You Happy” superstar Sheryl Crow and more. The legendary country music trailblazer — who is turning 90 with a star-studded celebration this year — and genre-blending musician appear alongside other iconic artists on the list, which was revealed on Wednesday morning (February 1).

Fourteen artists were named on the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation’s list of nominees. Nelson and Crow are among eight of them who is on the ballot for the first time. An artist or band is eligible for nomination after releasing their first commercial recording at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination, according to the Rock Hall.

“This remarkable list of Nominees reflects the diverse artists and music that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame honors and celebrates,” John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, said in a statement. “These artists have created their own sounds that have impacted generations and influenced countless others that have followed in their footsteps.”

Fans can vote online every day at vote.rockhall.com, or in person at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Ohio, through April 28. The top five artists that the public selects will make it to a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied with other ballots when determining the 2023 Inductee, according to the Rock Hall. The Rock Hall also states that an international voting body of more than 1,000 artists, historians and other members of the music industry received nominee ballots. Consideration includes an artist’s musical impact on others, length and depth of their body of work throughout their career and more.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in May, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2023 Induction Ceremony will take place in the fall.
