Just 3 artists will be selected from the following Performing Sonwriters:
Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey, Chrissie Hynde, Vince Gill, Mike Love, Jimmy Cliff, Jeff Lynne, Cat Stevens, John Prine, Lloyd Price, Tommy James and Eurythmics (Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart).

As the hugely successful Eurythmics, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart brought an innovative sound and plenty of style to the 1980s. After “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” topped the charts in 1983, they achieved international fame, their career buoyed by follow-up hits like “Here Comes The Rain Again” and “Would I Lie To You?”

The pair went on hiatus in the 1990s and pursued successful solo careers before reteaming at the end of the decade for a final studio album, Peace, featuring the hits “I Saved the World Today” and the U.S. dance chart No. 1 “17 Again.”

Key songs in the Lennox / Stewart catalog include:  *  Here Comes The Rain Again *  Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)  *  Would I Lie To You *  Missionary Man *  Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves.
