The Vic Chesnutt Songwriter of the Year Award was established in 2017 by the Rotary Club of the Classic City of Athens to recognize and celebrate the creative talents of songwriters of all genres of music living in the greater Athens community. The new award, named in honor of the internationally acclaimed local singer/songwriter Vic Chesnutt, serves to celebrate the Classic City’s storied tradition of song, to reward honesty and bravery in songwriting, and to honor and promote Athens’ finest songwriters.

Funds raised from the inaugural event are used to award a cash prize to the Songwriter of the Year, to benefit Nuci’s Space (a local non-profit health and resource center for musicians), and to support the Classic City Rotary Club’s community service activities, which include local efforts to promote the arts, support literacy and education, eradicate hunger and enhance the outdoors. more >>>
