The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation recently became an organizational member of the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce, as the two groups formalized their commitment to reaching mutual goals.
Deb Woolley, President of the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce, said, "Dallas Frazier and Sonny Curtis performed at our last board of directors meeting, and we discussed the economic impact of the music industry. It is a key economic driver in Tennessee and a major employer and shares many of the challenges that other employers also face. We welcome the Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation and look forward to addressing issues that impact the success of all our businesses and industries."
"After attending the State Chamber's recent board meeting, I was reminded of how much our organizations have in common," said Roger Murrah, Chairman of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Foundation. "The Chamber recognizes the music industry's impact on the state's economy, and our foundation knows how beneficial it is to connect with business leaders from around the state, especially as the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame prepares its future home on Music Row."
