Bob Seger, Gordon Lightfoot, Heading Into The Songwriters Hall Of Fame

[photogallerylink id=14297 align=right] The 2012 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees have been announced.

Bob Seger, Gordon Lightfoot, Jim Steinman, Don Schlitz and the duo Harvey Schmidt & Tom Jones will be inducted during the 43rd annual induction and awards dinner on June 15, 2012 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.

Songwriters Hall Of Fame chairman Jimmy Webb said “Each of our 2012 inductees has created a unique range of extraordinary contributions, a body of work that has resonated with audiences around the world, and greatly enriched our global culture. We are looking forward to celebrating their craft and careers at our annual awards gala.”

Back in October Seger told The Insider that, “It’s very nice to be nominated, and I’m very grateful for that. I really work hard on (songwriting). I like to think that I leave a little blood on the page and work really hard on my lyrics, chord changes and everything, structures. So it’s pretty heartening to get that nod.”

Congrats to Seger and all the inductees!
