The Songwriters Hall of Fame has announced its slate of nominees to be voted upon for induction at its 51st Annual Induction & Awards Gala on June 11, 2020, in New York City.
Among the nominees are 21-time Grammy winner Vince Gill, Sonny Curtis (who penned Keith Whitley’s “I’m No Stranger To The Rain,” among other hits), Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan (Barbara Mandrell’s “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool” and Ronnie Milsap’s “Smokey Mountain Rain” among other hits), and Bob McDill (Alan Jackson’s “Gone Country,” Mel McDaniel’s “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On,” among others).
The Songwriters Hall of Fame is dedicated to recognizing the work and lives of those composers and lyricists who create music around the world. A songwriter with a notable catalog of songs qualifies for induction 20 years after the first significant commercial release of a song. Eligible voting members will have until midnight on Dec. 16, 2019 to turn in ballots with their choices of three nominees from a songwriter and three from a performing songwriter category.
