Today, the Songwriters Hall of Fame announced their 2011 inductees, and Garth Brooks is one of the names among the many talented lyricists. Get more at Taste of Country.

Over his nearly 30-year career as a singer-songwriter, Brooks has established himself as one of the most influential country artists of all time.

Although Brooks is know for his performer persona, Brooks has also penned several of his greatest hits, including ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes,’ ‘The Thunder Rolls,’ ‘Unanswered Prayers,’ and ‘We Shall Be Free.’

Garth Brooks one of the many talents in the 1990's that ushered in the latest country sound! I remember playing Garth when I worked at KNUE back in 1991. I had never heard a country artist quite like him before.  Thanks for paving the road Garth!
