I will sincerely miss Pam's smile and kindness. We met when I was the host for Davis Kidd Songwriters night. Some of my favorite memories are the nights spent around Pam's kitchen table writhing songs with her, performing side by side at many writers nights, seeing her walking up my home steps with the biggest teddy bear to give to my first born son Jordan ( he is 16 and we still have that bear). Getting wonderfully written emails asking how me and my family were doing (pre FB), getting birthday cards because she always remembered. So many memories but those are a few I hope her family will find comfort in hearing and know how much she will be missed and how she touched so many lives. Sincerely, Deborah Adams and Family Rich, Jordan and Alexey

I met Pam when I was working at the Country Music Hall of Fame. She was one of the songwriters who volunteered to participate in the Words and Music program. She was so kind! I’m shocked and sad that she’s gone.

I was so sorry to hear about my friend Pam Belford passing; because of Covid no one could get together any more; I always enjoyed going to see her at writers nights at the Vanderbilt Commodore & Blue Bird Cafe. So many fond memories. RIP Pam! My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones.

Pam was the kind of person you never forget. Her smile was the kind that you knew came from a place that held so many secrets. If she liked you, she would honor you with her humor, her supporting words of friendship, her family background that you and she could relate to. Pam was real. She was brave with her feelings, and I know that she made her friends feel special, the kind of special you feel to be so delighted that you could tell she genuinely liked you. It’s true she was much beloved in the songwriting community here. Her gift was more than her songs, it was the gift of being one of Pam’s favorite people. I will miss more than I can express. .

What a shining light! She was always so wonderful to give advice and share a story for my music clients. Angel is home.

I like met Pam when we both employees of the Nashville Public Library or when I joined the staff of WPLN Radio (then headquartered at the NPL), but even then we polymaths had a shared struggle as Jews trying to make headway among a '70s Music Row hierarchy that discriminated against women in general and Jewish women in particular. Pam was unbelievably modest about her early success as a songwriter, so much so that, until Music Row became aware of George Strait, I had no idea the extent to which Pam's dedication to her craft had already paid off. Though we had a shared heritage and shared associations with the Nashville Public Library and the music industry, Pam and I traveled in different business and social circles. As a result, our shared destiny remained that of acquaintances who were fond of each other rather than the cherished friends we called others. Though Pam and I lost touch, her kindness left an lasting imprint and I will always have the pride in her that accomplishments that members of ethnic groups have historically felt when one of their own "makes good.." My sympathy to Pam's family and all of those who were fortunate even to have her for a friend.

My heart is with the family and friends of Pam. I know that words cannot easy your grief but I pray that in time the precious memories you hold in your hearts bring peace and comfort to your souls. While we mourn here on Earth the Angels in Heaven rejoice. Peace be with you.
Anne Arenstein left a message on April 24, 2021:
Dearest Pam....words are failing me. I can't and don't want to imagine a world without your voice, your wit, your lovingkindess and your friendship. I am so grateful for your friendship and the comfort, strength and laughs you shared. You lived your dream, you went for it and you did it. I hope you knew how much you are loved, how much you are mourned. Your memory, your words, your songs and your voice are all for a blessing. Always. Love you, my dear friend.

My deepest condolences to all of Pam’s family and friends. You were a beautiful soul, fine songwriter and dear friend, Pam, and I will miss having you in my life. Rest high on that mountain, lovey.
Pam Simmons left a message on April 24, 2021:
Pam and I have been friends for 20 years. We called each other “Other Pam”. We would meet around each other’s birthday and treat each other, catch up. She is a cherished member of my songwriter gang, the Secret Society of Cool Songwriters and came to my annual holiday dinners and singalong - yes and she sang “Grandma got run over by a hybrid...” I’d pick her up at her condo at times and discussed life. We had lunch outside Panera’s not too long ago in Donelson. Pam and I were both breast cancer survivors. I think she beat it twice. She went with me to one of my appointments. Pam was one of the kindest, sweetest, humble, talented and funniest people I knew. I hate this is past tense. She loved her mom and sisters.
Cheryl Scutt left a message on April 24, 2021:
A shining light has left this world, but memories of her will brighten the lives of those who knew her. She was a woman of words, music, kindness, wit and a cherished friend to many. Condolences to her family.
