On the heels of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announcing their nominees for the Class of 2020, the Songwriters Hall of Fame has released theirs.

Up for induction next year are Journey, Steve Miller, Patti Smith, R.E.M., Mike Love of the Beach Boys, and Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics, as well as OutKast, Mariah Carey, Isley Brothers, Gloria Estefan, Vince Gill and more.

Those eligible for enshrinement need to have racked up a “notable catalog of songs” in the 20 years since dropping their “first significant commercial release” according to the rules.

Voting will end on December 16, with the induction ceremony taking place on June 11, 2020 in New York City.
