Dwight Yoakam and Larry Gatlin are among six musicians set to be inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The country stars — who penned many of their own hits — will be joined by fellow inductees Marcus Hummon, Kostas Lazarides, Rivers Rutherford and Sharon Vaughn. The inductees were revealed Wednesday morning at Columbia Studio A, in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row. All of the inductees except for Yoakam and Lazarides were on hand at Wednesday’s gathering.
The official induction of the 2019 Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame class will be on Oct. 14 at Nashville’s Music City Center. Tickets to the October 14 gala are $250 each, benefiting the Nashville Songwriters Foundation. Select seats are open to the public, and can be purchased by contacting Executive Director Mark Ford at firstname.lastname@example.org
