We’d like to wish a sincere congratulations to longtime Ernie Ball string player, Elvis Costello, who will be inducted into the Songwriter Hall of Fame tonight!

Costello joins Tom Petty, Nile Rodgers, Chip Taylor and the late Marvin Gaye and Bernard Edwards in the 2016 class.

“The 2016 roster of Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees is a beautiful mosaic of the best of late 20th Century popular music.” -co-chairs Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff

The 47th annual induction ceremony takes place June 9 at the Marriott Marquis hotel in New York City. Read the full 2016 announcement here.
