Songwriters Hall of Famer Pat Alger, who chairs the Hall of Fame’s Board of Directors, said “Here in Nashville where the music industry has always been built on a foundation of great songs written by legendary songwriters, each year only a few are elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. This year we are very pleased to welcome the class of 2014: Tom Douglas and Gretchen Peters in the songwriter category; Paul Craft in the veteran songwriter category; and John Anderson as our songwriter/artist.”
Gretchen said after the announcement, “I’m rarely at a loss, but this is truly overwhelming. This morning the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame announced its 2014 inductees, and I am honored beyond words to be among them.”
The four will be officially inducted on Sunday, Oct. 5, during the 44th Anniversary Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Dinner & Induction Ceremony.
Peters is set to release the followup to 2012’s ‘Hello Cruel World’ in early 2015.
