Taylor Swift was honored with The Taylor Swift Award last night (May 10) during the 64th BMI Pop Awards in Beverly Hills, California. This marks the second time in BMI’s 76-year history that the company has bestowed an award in someone’s name, following a similar award for Michael Jackson in 1990.
Swift also took home the BMI Pop Songwriter of the Year honor again, for penning hits from her project 1989, including “Bad Blood,” “Blank Space,” “Style,” and “Wildest Dreams.”
Jeff Bhasker was honored as part of the creative team behind “Uptown Funk,” which took home BMI Pop Song of the Year. Bhasker has also worked with Cam as producer and co-writer.
Sony/ATV was named BMI Pop Publisher of the Year, with 23 of the year’s most-performed songs. Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil were honored with the BMI Icon Award for crafting classics including “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place,” “On Broadway,” “Somewhere Out There,” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.”
