Garth Brooks to receive Gershwin Prize for Popular Song
Every Friday, the q This panel looks at the biggest stories in music news. Today, CBC arts reporter Lisa Christiansen and music journalist Stuart Berman join host Tom Power to discuss news that Garth Brooks will be the next recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song.
At 57, the country singer is the youngest artist to receive the honour and the second from the world of country music. Willie Nelson was the 2015 recipient.
Our panel shares their thoughts on Brooks as well as another major music icon, Nick Cave, who's getting his due in a different way.
