GARTH GETS THE GOLD

Garth Brooks is to accept the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Golden Note Award tonight in Washington, D.C.

The award is a long time coming for Garth -- the awards event was originally scheduled for the evening of September 11 and was postponed for all the obvious reasons.

The event, held at the Russell; Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, is an invitation-only event, and will include dinner and a musical tribute to Garth, featuring songwriters Pat Alger, Alan Bergman, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Cy Coleman, Hal David, David Gates, Jimmy Webb -- plus a special surprise guest.

The ASCAP's Golden Note Award recognizes an artist's contributions to American music both as a songwriter and performer.

Past recipients of the Golden Note Award include: Elton John, Tom Petty, Stevie Wonder and Andre Previn.
