Songwriters Hall of Fame

The Tennessean featured an article showcasing the new Songwriters Hall of Fame, designed by Tuck-Hinton Architects.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame is expected to have two dedicated spaces in the new Music City Center: a digital museum inside the center and an engraved walkway on the corner of Fifth Avenue and Demonbreun Street, also known as “Songwriters Square”.

“The plan is to use the Music Row space for meetings and for a songwriting education center. But the hall of fame itself will be downtown, open to visitors whenever the Music City Center is open. Tuck-Hinton architectural firm, which designed the Music City Center, is designing the hall’s space.”

“The Songwriters Hall of Fame foundation is raising money to meet a design and construction budget of $675,000, and to pay rent and provide for upkeep.”

“The names of Songwriters Hall of Fame members will be engraved into Crab Orchard stone at Songwriters Square.”

“It’s going to be a place where songwriters can gather, and hopefully there will be live music by songwriters presented there,” Alger says. “I think it’s fitting that you’ll have the big Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum across the street.”
