Dolly inducted into Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame

In 1986, Dolly was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, an organization that serves to honor and preserve the songwriting legacy associated specifically with the Nashville music community.

One of the world’s most prolific songwriters, Dolly once said,

“Anybody can sing, but not everybody can write.”

For Dolly, writing is more of a self-expression, as evidenced by the powerful storytelling exhibited in some of her greatest hits. On several occasions, when asked what she is proudest of in her career achievements, Dolly places her songwriting at the top of the list.
