The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame is honoring two who do, Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson, with induction into the hall.
Garth and Alan will join songwriters Thom Schuyler (“Sixteenth Avenue”), Allen Shamblin (“The House That Built Me”) and John Bettis (“Slow Hand”) in this go around.
Garth co-wrote “The Thunder Rolls,” “The River” and others, while Alan has written “Chattahoochee,” “Where Were You” and dozens of others.
The induction will happen Oct. 16 at a Nashville hotel.
