Rodgers was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016. He was voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the following year.
Nile Rodgers was unanimously re-elected to a second three-year term as chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame by the group’s board of directors at its annual board meeting on June 11. Rodgers was first elected to the post in 2018, when he succeeded Philly soul architects Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff.
"Three years ago, I was honored and humbled to be elected by my peers as the chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame,” Rodgers said in a statement. “It has been one of the most important experiences of my life to represent and advocate for the songwriting community. To now be given the opportunity to serve for another three years is a responsibility I take very seriously. We’ve done great work in the first three years despite the pandemic but we are just getting started. There is no music industry without the song and I’m delighted to serve the songwriters that have delivered the most iconic songs of all time.”
