Each year, the Nashville Songwriter Awards has filled the Ryman with notable music-makers, fans and industry members to honor the songwriters, advocates and legends NSAI seeks to celebrate and support year-round through the organization's efforts. Past recipients and honorees have included Loretta Lynn, George Strait, Ashley Gorley, Luke Combs, Bill Anderson, Josh Osborne, and more. While the esteemed stage of the Ryman will remain empty this year, for NSAI and its artists, the show will go on.
"While we will certainly miss the grand stage of the Ryman Auditorium for this year's Nashville Songwriter Awards, we are excited to be able to honor this year's Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Songwriter Artist of the Year, and the '10 Songs I Wish I'd Written' Awards in a unique way and to be able to tell an even deeper story for each in a virtual format," said NSAI Senior Director of Operations Jennifer Turnbow. "We relish the opportunity to provide a sense of celebration and community amid the uncertainty of this year."
Full details about honorees, performers, and tickets for the event will be announced in the coming months.
