Missy ElliottJohn Prine and Yusuf/Cat Stevens are among the 2019 inductees into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The organization announced the new group of inductees Saturday. Other inductees include Tom T. Hall, who Johnny Cash called his “all-time favorite songwriter”; Jack Tempchin, who co-wrote songs for the Eagles and Glenn Frey’s solo albums; and Dallas Austin, the songwriter behind radio hits for TLC, Monica, Pink, Boyz II Men, Madonna and more.

The members of the 2019 class of inductees into the Songwriters Hall of Fame were announced on CBS This Morning on Saturday, and hip-hop star Missy Elliott will become the first female hip-hop artist to join the more than 400 songwriters who have been inducted since 1970. The other inductees this year are Dallas Austin (“Creep,” “Motownphilly”); Tom T. Hall (“Harper Valley PTA,” “(Old Dogs, Children and) Watermelon Wine”); John Prine (“Angel From Montgomery,” “Paradise”); Jack Tempchin (“Peaceful Easy Feeling,” “You Belong to the City”); and Yusuf Islam, better known as Cat Stevens (you all know a Cat Stevens song or two, come on).

Regarding this year’s inductees, SHOF chairman (and hit songwriter/producer and Chic cofounder) Nile Rodgers said, “The first thing you need to know is it’s about the song, the second thing you need to know is it’s about the song, the third thing you need to know is it’s about the song.


"That’s true now more than ever, so I’m very proud that in my first year as Chairman of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame that we are recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time. The 2019 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres and gender, highlighting our dedicated mission to honor music creators who have enriched our lives. These are writers who in their time literally transformed music and helped make what’s happening today possible."
