The nominees for two Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame categories have been announced on the organization’s Facebook page and they include some Texans!
Nominees in the Songwriter category include: Aaron Barker, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Frank Dycus, Alex Harvey, Jim McBride, Gary Nicholson, Jim Rushing and Russell Smith.
Nominees in the Songwriter/Artist category include: Arthur Alexander, Amy Grant, Townes Van Zandt and Tony Joe White.
The selection for the Veterans category is underway. Because it is an in-house process separate from the ballot, only the winner is announced.
There will be four inductees in the class of 2016: two songwriters, one veteran, and one songwriter/artist. The inductees will be announced in July. Congrats to all the nominees!
