Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) honored superstar Toby Keith with BMI “Million-Air” Awards recently at a studio on Music Row. BMI’s Jody Williams and Clay Bradley presented the long-time BMI songwriter with several awards representing songwriting and publishing credits of more than 15 million air plays for some of Keith’s biggest hits, including “How Do You Like Me Now?,” “Beer For My Horses,” “She Never Cried in Front of Me,” “God Love Her,” “I Love this Bar” and “Who’s Your Daddy?”

 “Toby Keith is a stalwart BMI songwriter, who we’ve been honored to work with since early in his career. With these honors, he now stands at over 80 million performances and shows no signs of stopping,” said BMI’s Assistant Vice President of Writer/Publisher Relations Bradley.

The BMI “Million-Air” Award is given to songwriters, composers and publishers whose songs accumulate to over one million U.S. broadcast performances. The designation has been bestowed upon many of BMI’s iconic songwriters, including Sir Paul McCartney, Dolly Parton, Isaac Hayes and Roy Orbison.
