Garth Brooks Inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame

June 16th was a special day for country music star Garth Brooks. Not only was he inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in a New York City gala; but he was inducted by the legendary Billy Joel. Joel also performed “Shameless” before inducting Brooks. Trisha Yearwood was also on hand to celebrate the honor, singing a Hal David medley.

“You talk about songwriters, there’s one of the greatest songwriters of all time,” Brooks said about Joel. “And he’s taken a day out of his life to do this, I feel very lucky.”

Other inductees included Leon Russel, Allen Toussaint, Tom Kelly and John Bettis. Other performers included Drake, “Best I Ever Had,” Chaka Khan, “I’m Every Woman,” Dwight Yoakum, “Superstar,” and Boz Scaggs performed with Toussaint for “What Do You Want The Girl To Do.”
