NEW YORK -- Elton John and his longtime songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, will be honoured at this year's Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
John and Taupin, who teamed on most of the singer's best-known hits, will receive the Johnny Mercer Award during the June 13 ceremony in New York.
A Tuesday news release says the award goes to previous inductees -- John and Taupin were inducted in 1992 -- whose body of work upholds the standards set by Mercer, a co-founder of Capitol Records.
John and Taupin have teamed on some of rock 'n' roll's most well-known songs, including Rocket Man, Crocodile Rock, Daniel and Candle in the Wind.
This year's inductees are Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith, Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner, Holly Knight, JD Souther and Tony Hatch.
