The annual launch ceremony is like a cross between the Grammy Awards and a family gathering for the close songwriting and music publishing community. Each year, award-winning superstars state that the award means more to them than any other award they receive, as it is confirmation and approval from their peers.

Songwriting seems to be the foundation of the music industry, but songwriters often work behind the scenes that are unknown to millions of fans of performers and are often disproportionately rewarded for their work. While it doesn’t do much good on the latter, one of the great things about the ceremony is that you can see superstars like Billy Joel or Lionel Richie talking about people like John Bettis or Chip Taylor – who would? I just walked the red carpet of the event almost undetected – as an equal, as an influence, as an icon.
