The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame has announced that its 42nd Anniversary Hall of Fame Dinner & Induction Ceremony will now take place Sunday, October 7, 2012, at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.
John Van Mol, chairman of the organization, said the songwriters moved two weeks earlier than their previously announced date of October 21 to accommodate a schedule conflict with another organization that involved artist contractual tour commitments. “Many of the same music industry people would want to attend both events, and since we had more flexibility, our board felt it was in the best interest of all to change our date,” Van Mol said.
The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame dinner is one of the highlights of the Nashville Awards season and honors Nashville-connected writers who write songs that define country music and other genres as well. The 2012 inductees will be announced in the coming months. Last year’s honorees included Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, John Bettis, Thom Schuyler and Allen Shamblin.
