NEW YORK, Feb. 29 (UPI) -- Desmond Child, Albert Hammond, Loretta Lynn, Alan Menken and John Sebastian are to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York this year.

SHOF Chairman/Chief Executive Officer Hal David announced the names of the inductees Thursday.

The 39th annual induction and awards dinner is scheduled for June 19 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. Special award honorees will be announced at a later date, organizers said.

"From seminal rock to cross-over country, from pop anthems to Oscar-winning musicals, this year's inductees truly have contributed to the soundtrack of our lives," David said in a statement.
