BMI Congratulates its Songwriters Nominated for Induction Into 2023 Songwriters Hall of Fame

Posted in News on November 15, 2022

BMI is proud to congratulate its exceptional affiliates nominated for induction into the 2023 Songwriters Hall of Fame. With a rich history of paying tribute to the creators of the world’s most popular music, induction into the Songhall is an honor that ranks among the most prestigious accolades a songwriter can achieve. Songwriters with notable catalogs of music qualify for induction 20 years after the first significant commercial release of one of their works.

Eligible voting members have until midnight on December 28, 2022, to cast their votes with their choices of three nominees from the non-performing songwriter category and three from the performing songwriter category. Those selected will be inducted at the Hall’s 54th Annual Induction & Awards Gala on June 13, 2023, in New York City. 

BMI salutes its nominees and wishes them the best of luck.
