Everybody will agree that Alan Jackson, Bill Anderson and Steve Dorff belong to the best of the best songwriters.

The list also includes John Cougar Mellencamp, Kool & the Gang and more.

Songwriters’ HOF of the Year: Alan Jackson, Bill Anderson and Steve Dorff 1

Alan Jackson’s Songwriting

Alan Jackson has been a prolific songwriter throughout his career, writing or co-writing more than 20 of his own hits, including “Here In the Real World”, “Chattahoochee” and “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)”. Jackson shared in a press release:

“I started writing because somebody told me I needed some original material. I’d never even thought about writing or studied songwriting. There are different aspects of your career, and they all bring different rewards and feelings…but the songwriting is very fulfilling… Songwriting is definitely the most creative part”.

Steve Dorff’s Songs

Steve Dorff’s songs have been recorded by iconic country artists such as Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray, George Strait, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson and countless others. His hits include Strait’s “I Cross My Heart” and Murray’s “I Just Fall in Love Again.” He said in a press release:

“I am profoundly honored and grateful to be included in this amazing class of songwriters”.

The Songwriter, Bill Anderson

Bill Anderson’s first major label song release, “City Lights,” recorded by Ray Price, went to No. 1 when Anderson was barely 20 years old. In 60 years of songwriting, Anderson has cranked out the hits, including George Strait’s “Give It Away” and “Whiskey Lullaby,” a duet recorded by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss.

The Songwriters’ Hall of Fame’s 49th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner will be held on June 14 in New York City.

For those who don’t know what “Chattahoochee” sounds like, here it is.

Isn’t this amazing? Our beloved country artists are being recognized not only in music but also in songwriting. Being a fan of Alan Jackson makes me proud and happy for him. Don’t you? Let us know in the comments section below and don’t forget to like and share this post. God Bless Your Heart!
