Vince Gill is getting another shot at the Songwriters Hall of Fame.  The country star, who was on the ballot last year, is again one of the nominees for the honor.  This time around Toby Keith has been recognized as well. 

They're among the 12 singer-songwriters in the running in the Performing Songwriters category, along with Tom Petty, Cat Stevens, Gloria Estefan, and others.  Meanwhile, Bobby Braddock is being considered for the honor once again as well. 

Like Vince, Bobby was also a 2014 nominee.  His credits include George Jones' "He Stopped Loving Her Today" and Tracy Lawrence's "Time Marches On." 

Voting members of the Hall of Fame committee will submit their ballots in December.  The Songwriters Hall Of Fame's Class of 2014 will receive its official welcome with an event in New York next June.
