Garth Brooks leads Musicians Hall of Fame '16 inductees

Garth Brooks will be inducted into another Hall of Fame next month, but this time he's bringing his whole studio band with him.

Brooks and The G-Men — the group of musicians who've played with the country superstar on all of his studio albums — top the list of 2016 inductees into the Nashville-based Musicians Hall of Fame.

They'll share the stage with Brooks for a rare performance during this year's induction ceremony and concert, taking place Oct. 26 at Municipal Auditorium.

Fellow 2016 inductees include the late "Guitar Man" Jerry Reed, bluegrass great Ricky Skaggs and soul hitmakers Sigma Sound Studio Rhythm Section. Brooks' longtime producer, Allen Reynolds, will receive the Producer Award, while Engineer Awards will go to Lou Bradley, Mark Miller, Ron “Snake” Reynolds and Joe Tarsia.

Guitarist Don Felder will receive a special honor — the Iconic Riff Award — for his work on The Eagles' "Hotel California."

Tickets for the induction ceremony and concert go on sale Sept. 12 via Ticketmaster.
