Garcia, who died in 1995 will be inducted posthumously along with lyricist Robert Hunter for their work with the Grateful Dead. Lauper is best known for her 1980 hit single "Girls Just Want To Have Fun," and Perry, a former 4 Non Blondes member, is known to have written hit tracks for Christina Aguilera, Pink, Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys.
Country stars Keith and Braddock will be inducted for their contribution to country music, which for the latter means having written one hit song every decade for the past 50 years. He's the only person alive to have done so.
Dixon, who died in 1992, wrote the often-covered tracks "Hoochie Coochie Man," "Spoonful," "Little Red Rooster."
