NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Michael W. Smith hopes his induction into the Gospel Music Association's Hall of Fame doesn't make people think his career is over.
Smith and Dolly Parton were among the new inductees honored at a
ceremony last night in Nashville.
After 26 years in Christian music, Smith says he still feels like the best is yet to come.
Asked what he's most proud of, Michael W. Smith says it's simply that he's "survived success."
For that, he credits his faith, his wife and family, friends and management. Smith says they've kept him "pretty well grounded" in a business where people are always telling you how great you are.
