SESAC’s Nashville Music Awards is scheduled for October 28 at the Pinnacle at Symphony Place, and kicks off a jam-packed CMA Awards week by honoring top songwriters and publishers from Country and Americana.
This year the invitation-only event will feature a special tribute to Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Cafe, in honor of its 30th anniversary celebration. The beloved venue has launched the careers of many songwriting greats and helped establish the careers of Garth Brooks and Kathy Mattea, among others.
The annual awards dinner draws over 400 of the industry’s top artists, writers, publishers and executives. In recent years, the organization has conferred performance awards on Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers, Hillary Scott, Monty Powell, Jim Lauderdale, Victoria Shaw and more.
