Taylor Swift, Ashley Gorley To Be Honored At Nashville Songwriter Awards

The Nashville Songwriters Association International has revealed that Taylor Swift and Ashley Gorley will be their Decade honorees.

Swift will be honored as the “Songwriter-Artist of the Decade” and Gorley as the “Songwriter of the Decade” during the 5th annual Nashville Songwriter Awards to be held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on September 20.

Jordan Davis, Little Big Town, Luke Combs, Parmalee, and Alana Springsteen will join previously announced performers set to take the stage to honor their favorite writers and award-winners.

Decade award winners are determined by their cumulative songwriting success between the designated years (2010-2019), where points are given by calculating the percentage of songwriting credit in a Nashville-associated song and tracking each song’s performance on a week to week basis in the Top 20 of the Billboard Country Airplay Chart, Billboard Pop Songs Chart, Billboard Christian Airplay Chart or Billboard Rock Airplay Chart.

“A great songwriter can have you see and feel them. But, a truly gifted songwriter’s songwriter will have you see, feel and smell those roses in the window. That’s Taylor,” said Keith Urban.

Chart-topping songwriter Ashley Gorley has earned the title of NSAI’s “Songwriter of the Year” five times in the past.

“I have so much respect for Ashley Gorley. His talent as a songwriter is obvious, but his work ethic combined with that talent is truly inspirational. He’s one of the hardest working and most passionate people in town and truly deserves this honor,” said Thomas Rhett.
