The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and preserving the songwriting legacy that is uniquely associated with the Nashville music community. Its purpose is to educate, celebrate and archive the achievements and contributions made by members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame to the world. 

The Foundation is governed by a 13 member board of directors. Each year the organization inducts a minimum of three songwriters, with an occasional special induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

It was announced in October 2012 that the future home of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame will be permanently housed in the Music City Center, Nashville’s new 1.2 million-square-foot convention center that will open in Spring 2013.  The Hall of Fame will be located in the lobby adjacent to Sixth Avenue (facing Demonbreun Street) and will consist of two elements. The actual Hall of Fame inside the Music City Center will feature graphic displays and artifacts as well as a state-of-the-art interactive, digital exhibit. Outside the Music City Center’s Hall of Fame lobby will be a “Songwriters Square” complex, consisting of an exterior plaza and stair-step walkway that will be engraved with the names of Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame members, the year they were inducted, and the title of their most well-known compositions.
