A Dolly Parton classic and the debut releases from Kris Kristofferson and Doc Watson are entering the Grammy Hall of Fame. 

Parton's "Jolene" is among the 17 singles that have been selected for the honor, along with the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women," Sam Cooke's "Wonderful World," and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Fortunate Son." 

Inducted albums include Kristofferson and Doc Watson, as well as George Harrison's three-disc set All Things Must Pass, U2's The Joshua Tree, the Mary Poppins Original Cast Sound Track, and others. 

The oldest inductee is Hoagy Carmichael's 1930 single "Georgia (On My Mind)," while recordings by Neil Young, Chicago, Miles Davis, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe have also been added to the collection. 

Eligible recordings must be at least 25 years old and be considered "of lasting qualitative or historical significance."  With the latest inductees, the Grammy Hall of Fame has grown to 960 titles.
