Country stars Lady Antebellum are set to be inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame.

The "Need You Now" hitmakers will be recognized in the performer category, alongside fellow honorees including rockers Wet Willie, songwriter Ed Roland, blues singer Francine Reed and comedian Jeff Foxworthy.

Gospel star Wally Fowler will be inducted posthumously, 20 years after his death.

Lady Antebellum's Dave Haywood, who is a Georgia native, admits he is still coming to terms with the surprise news.

He says, "We've never been a part of something like this before. It's pretty special hearing the words 'Lady Antebellum' and 'hall of fame' in the same sentence. We really feel honored to be included."

The 36th annual Georgia Music Hall of Fame Awards ceremony is due to take place in Atlanta on October 11.
