NASHVILLE — The late coun­try singer and song­writer Vern Gos­din, as well as veteran song­writ­ers Jim McBride, Walt Aldridge and Tim Ni­chols, will be in­ducted into the Nashville Song­writ­ers Hall of Fame this fall.

Gos­din, who died at age 74 in 2009, was known for his songs “Set ‘Em Up Joe’’ and “I’m Still Crazy.’’ His “Chis­eled In Stone’’ was named the 1989 song of the year by the Coun­try Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion. McBride’s col­lab­o­ra­tions with Alan Jack­son re­sulted in hits like “Chas­ing That Neon Rain­bow’’ and the smash “Chat­ta­hoochee.’’

Aldridge wrote “(There’s) No Get­tin’ Over Me’’ by Ron­nie Mil­sap and Ni­chols won a Grammy for writ­ing “Live Like You Were Dy­ing’’ for Tim McGraw.
