Lil Nas X to be Honored at Songwriters Hall of Fame 2022 Celebration

Published: Friday 20th May 2022 by Sam

Lil Nas X is set to be saluted at the 51 st annual Songwriters Hall of Fame gala.

Full story below…

Taking place next month, the long-awaited ceremony (which was delayed due to the health crisis) will honor a number of major figures such as Mariah Carey, The Neptunes, The Isley Brothers, and Annie Lennox.

Pop provocateur Nas will also be toasted to on the night with the Hal David Starlight Award, which recognizes “gifted young songwriters who are making a significant impact in the music industry via their original songs.”

The 23-year-old joins the likes of Drake, Taylor Swift, Halsey, Alicia King, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds, John Legend, and  John Mayer on the list of recipients of the award.

SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said in a statement:

“Lil Nas X is someone we are very proud to award the Hal David Starlight Award to. He has perhaps better than anyone demonstrated how powerful great songs are, with ‘Old Town Road’ and ‘Montero’ dominating the charts for almost every day of the last three years. If you’re lucky enough to be alive at this time, you know exactly who Lil Nas X is and he’s an incredible and inspirational person for every one of his communities as well.”

SHOF President & CEO Linda Moran added:

“Lil Nas X’s thought-provoking multi-genre song/musical style — described as pop rap, hip hop, country rap, trap, pop rock, pop, and rock — speaks soundly to diverse generations of fans. He is certainly worthy of joining the esteemed list of past Starlight Award honorees.”


The Songwriters Hall of Fame Gala takes place on June 16 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

    How Sway??? there is absolutely nothing stunning about his songs especially lyrically speaking. If this is the case Nicki pen game need to be recognized way before him including the likes of Cole, Kendrick, Drake, HER, The Weeknd, etc

    What special quotes or lyrics could have led them to this decision???
