KingSpirit Music publisher Todd Wilkes has loaned the original lyrics to “The Song Remembers When,” written by Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Hugh Prestwood, to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, for a future display in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Gallery. The song was a No. 1 hit recorded by Trisha Yearwood, as well as the title track of her 1993 album for MCA Nashville.

“The Song Remembers When” landed Prestwood the Primetime Emmy Award for “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Music and Lyrics” and the NSAI Song Of The Year. After the song was recorded, Prestwood presented his original lyrics to publisher, Todd Wilkes, as a token of thanks for placing the song for Prestwood.

The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame is located on the first floor of the Music City Center, at 201 5th Ave. S.
