GARTH BROOKS AMONG NEW MEMBERS OF COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Garth Brooks is one of the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame. He says he's "astounded and honored." Brooks says he's always considered himself lucky, and his good luck has struck again. He says there are so many deserving artists that came before him who are yet to be inducted. Also being inducted in the Hall of Fame later this year will be singer Connie Smith and keyboard player Hargus "Pig" Robbins.
