The late Tammy Wynette will be inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame at a formal ceremony on October 18, officials said on Tuesday.

Wynette, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame who died in 1998, co-wrote her signature song Stand By Your Man and the hit Til I Can Make It On My Own.

Awards also will be handed out for the year's best song, songwriter and songwriter/artist.

Other inductees this year are Kye Fleming, who wrote Ronnie Milsap's Smoky Mountain Rain and Barbara Mandrell's I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool; and Mark Sanders, who wrote Lee Ann Womack's I Hope You Dance and Faith Hill's It Matters To Me.
