According to an article in the TENNESSEAN, the NASHVILLE SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME (NASHOF) has delayed the opening of its physical location until the end of 2009. It had been originally scheduled to open at the end of this year. The site will be located at the old COLUMBIA STUDIO A at 34 Music Square East in NASHVILLE.
NASHOF Chairman ROGER MURRAH said: ""Our members cover a broad genre, it's not just Country. In a nutshell, the NASHVILLE SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME FOUNDATION is dedicated to honoring and preserving the songwriting legacy that is uniquely associated with the NASHVILLE music community. We're going to be the first organization honoring songwriters that moves from having an online presence to having a building. If we don't have the passion to pull this together ourselves, no one else is likely to do it for us. It's up to us to get it out there, and that's what we're doing to get the recognition the songwriters deserve."
In the meantime, NASHOF's website will be given a makeover and will relaunch on WEDNESDAY (8/13). MURRAH says the new site will be "more interactive, contain more information and evolve into a comprehensive body of information for people to enjoy."
