Garth Brooks is receiving special acknowledgment for his work. He's among a select group of artists being honored at the ASCAP Centennial Awards, taking place in New York City Monday night. 

The "once-in-a-century" prize recognizes the stars for their '"incomparable accomplishments" in music.  The five recipients also include Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel as well as Joan Baez and Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim. 

The gala will include the award presentations and tribute performances for the honorees.  The ASCAP Centennial Awards also mark the 100th anniversary of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. 

Congrats to Garth!
