The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame will reschedule its 50th Anniversary Gala to fall 2021.
“We had high hopes for another stellar event to celebrate our 50th Anniversary this fall,” says Sarah Cates, chair of the organization’s board of directors. “Unfortunately, the current health climate prevents us, like so many others, from being able to safely pursue our usual physical gathering this year.
“While it hurts not being able to reunite in our traditional format with so many cherished friends and hall of fame family members, we are excited to share that we will soon announce a Class of 2020,” Cates added. “We will work to shine a special spotlight on them as this year progresses, and we will also look forward to honoring them alongside the Class of 2021 in a special double-sized event next fall as we celebrate ‘Nashville Songwriting’s Most Legendary Night.’”
Cates added that the new date and more information will be forthcoming as soon as plans are finalized.
In 2019, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees included Larry Gatlin, Marcus Hummon, Kostas Lazarides, Rivers Rutherford, Sharon Vaughn, and Dwight Yoakam.
