The2020 Hall of Fame inductees include the late Country Music Hall of Fame member Tammy Wynette, singer/songwriter Bo Diddley, poet and writer Margaret Walker (Alexander) and bluesman John Lee Hooker. The Hall of Fame consists of influential men and women that have had an impact on arts and entertainment and count their roots in Mississippi. Previous inductees include Jimmy Buffett, Charley Pride, William Faulkner, Morgan Freeman, John Grisham, Elvis Presley and Oprah Winfrey among many others.

The nomination process consists of a nationwide committee of various arts and entertainment experts who nominate artists and entertainers from various art forms including music, writing, cultural arts, performing arts and visual arts. In order to be considered as a nominee, they must have a connection to the State of Mississippi. A panel of electors and fans then vote on which nominees should be inducted into The MAX Hall of Fame.
