NMPA TO HONOR TAYLOR SWIFT,
CMA'S TRAHERN

The NMPA will honor Taylor Swift with its Songwriter Icon Award and CMA CEO Sarah Trahern with the Industry Legacy Award at its annual meeting on 6/9.

“Taylor Swift has had an unprecedented year of success,” NMPA President & CEO David Israelite said. “She gave the world incredible songwriting when they needed it most and she continues to rewrite the rulebook when it comes to her career.

“She has always identified as a songwriter first, and in doing so inspired and elevated countless other creators. Her advocacy has lifted the entire creative community, and she has done it at great cost and risk to her own career. The risks paid off, not just for her but for our entire industry, and there is no one more deserving of our Icon award.”

Among other activities during the meeting will be a keynote Q&A with Bill Simmons, founder of The Ringer, with Israelite about the future of entertainment and the intersections of sports and music.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) will receive the NMPA President’s Award for his work to protect songwriters and music publishers. The program will also feature special tributes from Luke Bryan, Sara Bareilles and Priscilla Block as well as a Meet the (Music) Press roundtable.
