It’s best answered in our mission statement. “Founded in 2019, the mission of the Cleveland County Music Hall of Fame (CCMHOF) is to honor the legacy of pioneers from Cleveland County whose  talent has enriched the musical landscape of the area in which they live or lived while giving tools needed to future generations of musicians, instructors and all associated with our local music community.”

Named in honor of Calvin & Terresa Hastings, this award recognizes those who contributed to Cleveland County music but never lived here.

234 S Lafayette St in Uptown Shelby. Currently, we do not have the staff to keep it open on a regular basis. If you plan to visit, call first.

You can donate online or call or email us to make an appointment and we’ll be happy to meet with you.

We accept nominations at any time. You can send to [email protected] or PO Box 3226 Shelby NC 28151. Include as much documentation you can to support your nominee. The CCMHOF board of directors then vote from the nominees.


We will offer scholarships annually to Cleveland County HS seniors. Details of this program are still being finalized and will be announced in the near future.

In addition to our HOF & Hastings award inductees, there are awards and recognition for local music instructors, scholarship winners and more categories to be added.
