The Holly Prize
In 2009, the Songwriters Hall of Fame announced the creation of The Holly Prize, a new award made possible by Songmasters as a tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly, a SHOF inductee. The Holly Prize will annually recognize and support a new “all-in songwriter “— an exceptionally talented and inspired young musician/singer/songwriter whose work exhibits the qualities of Holly’s music: true, great and original. The Holly Prize is administered and juried by the SongHall, and coincided with Songmasters’ launch of Listen to Me, a multi-media platform celebrating the work of true, great and original music recording artists. Songmasters and Listen To Me are committed to providing great music and to helping the next generation of recording artists develop their talents and make outstanding music.
