Swift Wins BMI President’s Award

Taylor Swift attended BMI’s 57th Annual Pop Awards in Los Angeles, where she enjoyed a prestigious surprise. In addition to earning a BMI Pop Award for her crossover hit, “Teardrops on My Guitar,” Swift received the BMI President’s Award, which honors an exceptional individual in the entertainment industry deserving of special recognition. The BMI President’s Award is presented only on occasions when an individual has distinctly and profoundly influenced the industry. Swift is the youngest individual ever to receive the honor. Held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, the invitation-only ceremony was hosted by BMI President & CEO Del Bryant and BMI Vice President/General Manager, Los Angeles, Barbara Cane and also recognized the writers and publishers of the past year’s 50 most-performed pop songs from BMI’s catalog of more than 6.5 million compositions.
