Goo Goo Dolls' John Rzeznik Lands Songwriting Prize
Created in 2004 and named after Burt Bacharach's longtime songwriting partner, the Hal David award recognizes talented young songwriters.
Rzeznik joins Rob Thomas, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, and John Legend, who are all past recipients of the accolade.
David insists the rocker is the perfect choice for the 2008 honor: "John Rzeznik is well-deserving of the Starlight Award, not only shining as an outstanding, talented songwriter, but one with a unique vision." Hall of Fame inductees at this year's event include Desmond Child, Albert Hammond, Loretta Lynn, Alan Menken, and John Sebastian.
