Jackson Browne Becomes Songwriters Hall of Fame's Newest Inductee

Jackson Browne has become the newest inductee in the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

The 58-year-old singer/songwriter - who three years ago earned a slot in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame - joins Don Black, Michael Masser, Irving Burgie, Bobby Weinstein, and Teddy Randazzo in the Class of 2007.

Previous inductees include Bob Dylan, Elton John, and Paul Simon.

Selected by a nominating committee, eligible songwriters need to have been active for 20 years, and to have compiled an extensive catalog of hits.

This year's induction ceremony takes place June 7 in New York City.
