John Mellencamp Headed To Songwriter's Hall Of Fame


John Mellencamp has been added to this year's class of the Songwriter's Hall of Fame. This year, the Heartland Rocker joins a select group of elite songwriters including country star Alan Jackson and R&B icon Jermaine Dupri.

"The 2018 roster of Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees is a prodigious representation of creators of cross-genre hits, certain to resonate with everyone," Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, the organization's co-chairs, and Linda Moran, its president and CEO, said in a joint statement.

They add: "Each year, the slate of songwriters we induct is more diverse and illustrative of the history and contributions that we strive to acknowledge and honor."

Songwriters Hall of Fame's 49th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner will be held at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on June 14, 2018.
