SESAC is set to honor the top songwriters and publishers in the Country and Americana genres at the 2013 SESAC Nashville Music Awards. The awards ceremony is set for Sunday, Nov. 3 at the newly expanded Country Music Hall of Fame.
The SESAC Nashville Music Awards, an invitation-only, red carpet gala event, will honor the most popular songs of 2013 with awards being presented to the Songwriter of the Year, Song of the Year and Publisher of the Year. The event will also showcase performances by many honored songwriters and performers.
“We are always happy to kick off CMA Week with the SESAC Nashville Awards,” said Tim Fink, SESAC’s VP, Writer/Publisher Relations and the host of the awards. “It is a thrill to honor some of the most successful songwriters and publishers for their activity and to be hosting our event at the Country Music Hall of Fame is very exciting. In addition to recognizing our Country activity over the past year, we are also thrilled to keep with our long-standing tradition of awarding the successes of our family of Americana songwriters and publishers. As the only PRO to acknowledge the creators of the Americana genre along with the most performed Country songs in this new venue makes me look forward to a great event with diverse memorable highlights.”
Songwriters and artists previously honored at SESAC awards events include Bob Dylan, the Avett Brothers, Lady Antebellum, Thompson Square, Jim Lauderdale and others.
