Vince Gill and Bill Anderson are getting recognition for their songwriting abilities. The country stars are among the nominees for the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Gill is on the ballot in the Performer category, along with John Mellencamp, Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Heart's Ann and Nancy Wilson, Madonna, and others.
Anderson is up for the honor in the Non-Performer category along with a few other country songwriters.
Bobby Braddock, whose credits include George Jones' "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and Tracy Lawrence's "Time Marches On," is in the running along with Mark James, who penned Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds" and Willie Nelson's chart-topper "Always On My Mind." Don Robertson, who penned Hank Locklin's number one single "Please Help Me I’m Falling" and hits for Elvis, Hank Snow, and others, is on the short list as well.
Voting members of the Hall of Fame committee will turn in their ballots in December. The 2014 Songwriters Hall Of Fame Awards Gala will take place at the New York Marriott Marquis on June 12th.
