NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - The late Johnny Cash is among four new inductees into the GMA Gospel Hall of Fame.

DeGarmo & Key, the Golden Gate Quartet and Bill “Hoss” Allen also will be inducted on Jan. 24 in Hendersonville, Tenn.

Cash was raised on gospel music and famously turned to religion and Christian music midway through his career in search of a way to beat his problems with addiction.

This year’s inductees come from very different backgrounds. Rock band DeGarmo & Key was the first Christian act to air a video on MTV. The Golden Gate Quartet introduced jazz to gospel. Allen helped take the sound of gospel to the nation as an influential DJ on WLAC out of Nashville.

The Gospel Music Hall of Fame was founded in 1971 and more than 150 members have been inducted so far.
