“I was excited about getting inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame but when it actually was happening, more than anything, I became humbled to be honored among legends like Ray Charles and Gladys Knight while at the same time joining friends who have been with me since the beginning of my career like Jermaine Dupri, Dallas Austin and Shakir Stewart” said Cox.
