The country music star Carrie Underwood has congratulated with the talented Hillary Lindsey, for her induction into the Nashvill Songwriters Hall of Fame.
“Congratulations to the brilliant and amazingly talented Hillary Lindsey on her well-deserved induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame! My life would not be the same without this musical genius! Love you, Hillary, and I was so happy that Keith Urban and I got to honor you last night!”, has wrote Carrie Underwood.
Underwood and Urban teamed up to perform one of each artist’s most popular songs: “Jesus, Take The Wheel” and “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Both were co-written by Lindsey, a modern Music Row giant who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in her first year of eligibility.
From scoring her first No. 1 20 years ago with Martina McBride’s “Blessed,” the Belmont alumnae went on to work extensively with Underwood, Lady Gaga and Little Big Town, for starters.
“It’s like blind dating at first,” she told The Tennessean before the ceremony. “And you either get the feeling or you don’t. And for me, that’s kind of what it’s all about.”
Lindsey’s career began just as the music industry underwent a digital revolution, and adjusting to the streaming market in the past decade has brought its share of challenges and frustrations, she said.
“But then it never fails. You go in and you write something and you get those goosebumps. And you get the fire all over again.”
