Rosanne Cash, of Notable Music and Downtown Music Publishing, was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame on Sunday night. Cash joins a diverse group of legendary Nashville songwriters, including Chuck Berry, Garth Brooks and her late father, Johnny Cash. Johnny and Rosanne Cash made history as the first father-daughter duo to be inducted to the Hall of Fame, founded in 1970.

American Country songwriter, Rodney Crowell, inducted Rosanne into the Hall of Fame along with performances by Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, and John Leventhal, Rosanne's husband and fellow Downtown Songwriter.

Mark James, Even Steven, and Craig Wiseman were also inducted at the 45th annual gala awards dinner at Nashville's Music City Center.
