Garth Brooks To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Garth Brooks is set to receive quite an honor. On September 20th he’ll be honored with NSAI’s Kris Kristofferson Lifetime Achievement Award. The celebration will go down at 5th annual Nashville Songwriter Awards, taking place at the Ryman Auditorium.

“When they name awards after artists, that award takes on an even greater meaning. Kristofferson is known as the songwriter’s songwriter… and he should be,” Garth shares. “The honor is the name on the award and the names who have received it,” noting, “My hope is that through time, the Garth Brooks name is worthy of such an honor. This is going to be a cool night.”

The award, with the winner chosen by Kris himself, is given out to “an individual whose works have made a significant contribution to the American songbook and has inspired the careers of others.” Only three others have received it, Loretta Lynn (2019), Bill Anderson (2018) and Willie Nelson (2013).
