Fourteen of Nashville’s top writers from BMI, ASCAP and SESAC received the award, which is presented to those who pen three chart-topping hits in a 12-month period.

“It’s an honor to host this event that shines the light on songwriters,” said Troy Tomlinson, former CMA Chairman of the Board and President and CEO of Sony/ATV Music Nashville. “Songwriters are the foundation of country music and today we get to honor their creative contributions.”
