ASCAP Announces Virtual Ceremonies For Country, Christian, London Music Awards

ASCAP will hold its 2020 awards ceremonies recognizing winners of its Christian, Country and London Music Awards virtually, beginning with the ASCAP Christian Music Awards, which will kick off Oct. 7-8.

Each event will take over ASCAP’s social media channels with exclusive photos, performances and video acceptance speeches shared by top songwriters, composers and publishers.

This summer ASCAP hosted its Pop, Screen, Latin and Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in June and July on social media, giving the public a rare chance to participate in what are usually invitation-only events. During the events fans and friends engaged with ASCAP Awards-related posts nearly 370,000 times for a total of 7.2 million social media impressions.

“As we saw in June and July, these virtual awards events give us a much-needed reason to smile, laugh and celebrate together during this difficult time,” said ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams. “It is beautiful to see the outpouring of love and support as friends, family and fans cheer on the creators behind their favorite songs. Our members are the heart and soul of ASCAP, and we look forward to honoring the outstanding contributions of our Christian, Country and London-based songwriters this fall.”

Each event will use the hashtag #ASCAPAwards on @ASCAP across all social media channels.

The ASCAP Awards dates:

  • ASCAP Christian Music Awards: Oct. 7 – 8
  • ASCAP London Music Awards: Oct. 21 – 22
  • ASCAP Country Music Awards: Nov. 9 – 12
