Linda Perry, Cyndi Lauper, Toby Keith, Bobby Braddock, Willie Dixon and the late Jerry Garcia will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame as the 2015 Class. Garcia and lyricist Robert Hunter will be inducted as a duo for their songwriting work for Grateful Dead.
“Our 2015 lineup of inductees represents the rich diversity of American musical styles — Rock, Country, Blues and Pop — that have captivated the world over the past six decades,” said hall president and CEO Linda Moran. “Each one of these brilliant music creators have written instantly recognizable classics, songs that are both of their time and timeless.”
Perry has written hits such as Christina Aguilera‘s “Beautiful” as well as songs for Pink and Alicia Keys. The hall’s 46th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner will take place at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on June 18th.
