The Country Music Association has announced the honorees for the 11th annual CMA Triple Play Awards, which are presented to songwriters who have written three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period.

This year’s recipients include Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Ross Copperman, Justin Ebach, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy, Shay Mooney, Jon Nite, Josh Osborne, Bobby Pinson, Matthew Ramsey, Jordan Reynolds, Thomas Rhett, Trevor Rosen and Dan Smyers.

Gorley, the most decorated CMA Triple Play Awards recipient, will receive three Triple Play Awards this year for penning nine No. 1 songs over the past year.

UMPG Nashville Chairman/CEO and CMA Board Member Troy Tomlinson will host the industry-only CMA Triple Play Awards luncheon, to be held Feb. 25. That evening, Copperman will host a CMA Songwriters Series performance at Marathon Music Works in Nashville, beginning at 7 p.m., featuring Ebach, Gorley, Nite, Pinson, and Reynolds.
