The organization announced Wednesday that Linda Perry, country music songwriter Bobby Braddock and “Hoochie Coochie Man” writer Willie Dixon will also be inducted on June 18. 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.”
The hall’s 46th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner will take place at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. Garcia and Dixon will be inducted posthumously.
