Tom Petty, Elvis Costello, Marvin Gaye Will Be Inducted Into the Hall of Fame

Elvis Costello, Tom Petty and the late Marvin Gaye are among the artists selected to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, set for June 9 in New York City. Joining that trio of legends will be 1960s hitmaker Chip Taylor and Chic principles Nile Roders and Bernard Edwards, who died in 1996.

The new inductees are responsible for such iconic songs as "What's Going On," "Wild Thing," "American Girl," "I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down," "Le Freak" and many, many more.

"The 2016 roster of Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees is a beautiful mosaic of the best of late 20th Century popular music. With creators of Rock & Roll, Soul/R&B, Country and Funk/Dance represented, we are looking forward to an unforgettable and extremely exciting event and evening at the Marriott Marquis on June 9th," said co-chairs Kenneth Gamble & Leon Huff, who are serving their first year in that role.
