RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Jimmy Dean will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The Country Music Association announced the 2010 class yesterday. The singer, actor and businessman will join three other inductees.

Dean became a star in the golden age of television, before founding his sausage company.

Dean, who lives in Henrico, will be inducted later this year in Nashville.
