26 August 2013 news


Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI), global leader in music rights management, honoured the country superstar, Carrie Underwood, with multiple BMI “Million-Air” Awards at a recent reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame. BMI’s Associate Director of Writer/Publisher Relations, Leslie Roberts joined Underwood onstage to present the certificates, honouring the prolific performance records of songs Mama’s Song and Good Girl, with one million performances each, and All-American Girl, with two million to date. Roberts commented: “With a catalogue boasting more than 13 million performances, Carrie has become one of the most successful songwriters in country music today.” BMI’s Vice President of Writer/Publisher Relations Jody Williams said: “We at BMI could not be more proud and are excited to celebrate these continued incredible achievements with her.” The BMI “Million-Air” Award is given to songwriters, composers and publishers whose songs accumulate over one million U.S. broadcast performances. It has been bestowed upon many of BMI’s iconic songwriters, including Sir Paul McCartney, Dolly Parton, Isaac Hayes and Roy Orbison. The acknowledgement is a mark of respect and praise. The three tracks honoured at the reception alone, played back-to-back, would total nearly 23 years of continuous play, indicative of Underwood’s impressive accomplishments. www.bmi.com
