Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Finds a Permanent Home

The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame will soon have a permanent home in the Music City Center, a new convention center under construction in downtown Nashville. Although the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame was established in 1970 and now includes 184 members, it never existed as a physical place where visitors could view memorabilia and media displays. The space in the convention center will feature songwriting artifacts and touch screens that will allow visitors to access sound, video and other digital information about the history of the Nashville songwriting community. To help finance the project, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation will launch a capital campaign Sunday (Oct. 7) during its annual Hall of Fame dinner and induction ceremony. The Hall of Fame is expected to be completed when the Music City Center opens in the spring of 2013.
