...and I was going to add that I bet Garth will say that he doesn't deserve this honor. I just read this on the GAC website -

“I want to thank the Songwriters Hall of Fame for this distinguished honor,” said Garth. “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.”

He soooo deserves it; if it weren't for Garth I would have never discovered the wonderful music of Stephanie Davis, Victoria Shaw, Pat Alger and Kent Blazy among others. I wouldn't have known who Chris LeDoux was having not followed rodeo.

And he's a damn fine wordsmith in his own right.

That would be awesome! And a well deserved honor it is! Now, we gotta get him into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as soon as he's eligible... (2014)

Billy Joel to Induct Garth Brooks
Billy reveals that the only thing on his calendar at the moment is inducting Garth Brooks into the Songwriters Hall of Fame during a ceremony to be held in New York City in June. Garth and Billy have been friends since Garth scored a #1 country hit with a version of Billy's song "Shameless." The two have also shared concert stages over the years.
