FORT WORTH (AP) - Grammy Award-winner Lyle Lovett is getting another feather in his cowboy hat.

He’s being inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame on Thursday night in Fort Worth.

The hall of fame honors excellence in competition, business and the support of rodeo and the western lifestyle in Texas.

Lovett is a native Texan who is involved in breeding, riding and showing horses.

The four others being honored are former rodeo star Vernon “Dude” Smith; Buddy Jeffers and Jim Odle, who founded Superior Livestock, one of the nation’s busiest livestock auction houses; and the late George Paul, the 1968 world champion bull rider.

Past inductees include Grammy winner George Strait, bull-riding champion Ty Murray, Oscar winner Tommy Lee Jones, and Texas Rangers owner and Baseball Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan.
