The Nashville Songwriters Association International is set to present a star-studded evening on Sept. 19, 2018, during the Nashville Songwriter Awards, presented by City National Bank at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 25 at 10 a.m. CT at ryman.com.
“We are very proud to present this important and exciting event recognizing Nashville’s finest songwriters and their songs at the hallowed Ryman Auditorium,” said NSAI President, award-winning songwriter Steve Bogard. “It promises to be an amazing night full of memorable performances honoring the best in our business.”
Bill Anderson will receive the organization’s highest honor, the Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award.
Additional honorees will include the 2018 “Song of the Year,” “Songwriter of the Year,” “Songwriter-Artist of the Year,” and NSAI’s coveted “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written” which are chosen by Nashville’s professional songwriters.
LANCO and Chris Janson have already confirmed to perform during the show and there are many star performers and surprise guest stars who will be announced very soon.
“We have a very long history of supporting songwriters and the creative community,” said Lori Badgett and Diane Pearson, heads of entertainment banking for City National Bank in Nashville. “We are so pleased that many of our friends are being honored at this memorable event. Nashville has always been a special place for creators and City National is so proud to continue to support them.”
This year’s Nashville Songwriter Awards marks the first year that the Nashville Songwriters Association International will present its awards at the Ryman Auditorium in a separate event from the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
