Dolly inducted into National Academy of Popular Music/Songwriters Hall of Fame

Dolly was honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Award from the National Academy of Popular Music on June 14, 2001. The award was established in 1969 to help “shine the spotlight on the accomplishments of songwriters who have provided us with the words and music that form the soundtrack of our lives.” Emmylou Harris performed for Dolly’s induction ceremony.

Dolly sees herself as a songwriter and considered the award one of the greatest of her life,

“Honestly, being put into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, with all the great people in there, would have to be one of the greater compliments that anyone could ever be paid. I don’t know that I’m deserving, but it makes me want to go out and write songs.”
