In case you missed it...

Brad Paisley and Shania Twain are once again among this year’s nominees for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Both artists have been nominated in the Songwriter/Artist category, as they were last year, along with Kirk Franklin and Pam Tillis. In addition Larry Cordle, Jim Lauderdale, Hillary Lindsey, Frank J. Myers, Gary Nicholson, Ronnie Rogers, Tia Sillers, and Tommy Sims have been nominated in the Songwriters category. Two songwriters and one songwriter/artist will be elected to the HOF by their peers and members of the HOF. In addition, two more will be named to the class of 2022. There will also be a veteran songwriter and a veteran songwriter/artist chosen by a separate body of veteran voters. To qualify for these two spots, the nominees will have to have had their first Top 20 hit at least 30 years ago. Those selected will be honored October 30th, at Nashville's Music City Center.

Garth Brooks is set to receive quite an honor. On September 20th he’ll be honored with NSAI’s Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award. The celebration will go down at 5th annual Nashville Songwriter Awards, taking place at the Ryman Auditorium. “When they name awards after artists, that award takes on an even greater meaning. Kristofferson is known as the songwriter’s songwriter… and he should be,” Garth shares. “The honor is the name on the award and the names who have received it,” noting, “My hope is that through time, the Garth Brooks name is worthy of such an honor. This is going to be a cool night.” The award, with the winner chosen by Kris himself, is given out to “an individual whose works have made a significant contribution to the American songbook and has inspired the careers of others.” Only three others have received it, Loretta Lynn (2019), Bill Anderson (2018) and Willie Nelson (2013).
