It's that time of year again for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to reveal the nominees for the newest induction class!
And the 2019 Rock Hall nominees are...
LL Cool J
Rage Against the Machine
Rufus & Chaka Khan
Among the nominee group, six of the 15 artists are first time nominees including Def Leppard, Devo, John Prine, Roxy Music, Stevie Nicks (for her solo work) and Todd Rundgren.
Listen to The Preston & Steve Show's conversation about this year's nominees:
As in previous years, fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite nominee. The top five artists, as selected by the public, will comprise a “fans’ ballot” that will be tallied along with the other ballots to choose the 2019 inductees. Fans can begin voting today at RockHall.com/FanVote. Voting will last through 11:59 p.m. EST on December 9.
The 2019 induction class will be announced in December with the induction ceremony taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on March 29, 2019 and air on HBO.
