BMI and ASCAP toasted the team behind the Carrie Underwood No. 1 smash “Two Black Cadillacs” at a ceremony held at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Tuesday, June 4.

Kicking off CMA Music Fest week, Underwood invited 200 of her most avid fans to an exclusive in-the-round performance featuring “Two Black Cadillacs” co-writers Josh Kear and Hillary Lindsey, as well as Underwood performing a selection of her many hits. Following the performances, BMI and ASCAP treated the crowd to what is typically an industry insider event by honoring the team behind “Two Black Cadillacs.”
