Blues Hall of Fame er et æresgalleri for artister og andre som har levert viktige bidrag til bluesmusikken. Galleriet ble opprettet av Blues Foundation i 1980. De innvalgte tilhører en av fem kategorier: Utøvere, enkeltpersoner (som bidrar uten at de er direkte utøvere av musikken), Classic of Blues litteratur, Classic of Blues-innspilling (sang) og Classic of Blues-innspilling (album).

Det er ingen nominasjonsprosess for å bli valgt inn, en komite møtes om høsten og diskuterer seg frem til kandidater til de ulike kategorien, som de senere stemmer over. Antallet nominasjoner kan variere.
