A little ditty about Jack and Diane has taken John Mallencamp to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

Musical heavyweights  Bill Anderson, Robert “Kool” Bell, Ronald Bell, George Brown & James “JT” Taylor  from  “Kool & The Gang,” Steve Dorff, Jermaine Dupri, Alan Jackson, John Mellencamp and Allee Willis will become the latest inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame at the organization’s 49th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner.

These legendary songwriters wrote mega-hits such as, "Mama Sang a Song," “Celebration,” “Through The Years,” “Always Be My Baby,” “Chattahoochee,” “Jack And Diane,” “I’ll Be There For You.” 

Established in 1969, the Songwriters Hall of Fame serves as a vital bridge between music’s past and future. In the Hall, musical pioneers are enshrined and celebrated, while the organization’s outreach to the music community grooms the next generation of troubadours.
