Luke Combs & Ashley Gorley Win Nashville Songwriter Awards From the NSAI

The Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) announced its Songwriter of the Year and Songwriter/Artist of the Year as part of its annual Nashville Songwriter Awards.

  • Songwriter/Artist of the Year: Luke Combs
  • Songwriter of the Year: Ashley Gorley

This marks the second year in a row Luke has been named Songwriter/Artist of the Year, while Ashley picked up his fifth NSAI Songwriter of the Year award.

Luke’s first nine singles, all of which he co-wrote, have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, including three—“Does to Me,” “Even Though I’m Leaving” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart”—that factored into this year’s eligibility period (May 2019 to April 2020).

Ashley scored his 50th No. 1 single as a songwriter when Locash’s “One Big Country Song” reached No. 1 on the Mediabase chart in August. Additional recent No. 1 hits co-penned by Ashley include Sam Hunt’s “Hard to Forget,” Brett Young’s “Catch” and Dustin Lynch’s “Ridin’ Roads.”

The Nashville Songwriter Awards are presented by the world’s largest not-for-profit songwriters trade organization that was established in 1967.
