Songwriters Get Home for Hall

Dolly Parton was in Nashville, Sept. 20, to announce the permanent home for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The building is located at 34 Music Sq. East in Nashville, the former home of the famed Columbia Studio A. The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame has more than 160 members, including Dolly herself, but has never had an actual location to honor them. Dolly recalled that she used to hang out with songwriter buddies like Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, and they all wondered if there would ever be a hall of fame strictly for writers. The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame was eventually established in 1970. “But it’s great to know that we now have a physical home where people can actually come, visit and see what it’s like to write a song,” Dolly said. “I’m very excited about the new Hall of Fame.”
