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. We are thrilled that the SHOF and Songmasters have awarded the 2011 Holly Prize to our own Kendra Morris! On behalf of Notable Music and our partners at Wax Poetics, we want to congratulate Kendra on this incredible honor! Buddy Holly reinvented popular music and literally defined a generation and set the bar for every writer who followed him. it is humbling to be associated with his legacy in any way. Many, many thanks again to the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Songmasters for awarding the Holly Prize to Kendra and to ASCAP for nominating her!
