Yes, you know Garth Brooks as a high-energy arena-filling superstar. Some folks might forget he wrote some of the songs that helped fill those arenas.

But not the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The all-genre hall is inducting Garth, Leon Russell and a few others June 16 in a ceremony at a New York hotel.

Garth’s credits include “The Thunder Rolls” and “If Tomorrow Never Comes.”

He made the following statement:

To consider myself a "songwriter" is something I find hard to agree with, for it is the songwriter that is the most gifted and most important ingredient in the music formula.I am humbled and flattered by this award and want to thank the songwriters I have written with in the past. I feel it is because of them I am receiving this award.
