2014 Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame!

from this morning's press conference

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 induction ceremony will take place on October 5, 2014 here in Nashville. I’m hoping I will have recovered sufficiently by then to give a coherent acceptance speech. Many, many thanks for all the lovely congratulatory posts on Twitter and Facebook. Here’s the Tennessean’s coverage of this morning’s press conference.
