The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Gallery is located inside the Music City Center, on the first floor, at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Demonbreun Street.

The names of 188 Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame members, who come from every genre of music, are engraved in a special outdoor Songwriters Square at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Demonbreun, and on the stone steps leading from Fifth Avenue up to the interior display. Songwriters Square is located directly across the street from the Country Music Hall of Fame in downtown Nashville.
