NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Name just about any trophy, lifetime achievement award or honorific, and Garth Brooks can claim ownership.

Sunday night he'll get the big one: Country Music Hall of Fame member.

Brooks will be inducted along with Connie Smith and Hargus "Pig" Robbins in a surprise-packed performance at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville.

It's a well-deserved honor for the man who took country music from a regional sound to an international phenomenon. It's also one the 50-year-old balked at, though he says he has become more comfortable with it.

"When they announced it, all I could think about was the guys who aren't in there that should be before me," Brooks said. "And as we've gotten closer I see that, but I just can't help be like a little kid at Christmas. It's going to be a great, great, great night."
