LYLE LOVETT will be honored with the “ASCAP Creative Voice Award” at the 50th annual ASCAP COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS on MONDAY, OCTOBER 29th.
The invitation-only event will be held at the GAYLORD OPRYLAND RESORT AND CONVENTION CENTER in NASHVILLE. It will honor songwriters and publishers of the most performed Country songs for the year. In particular, the “ASCAP Creative Voice Award” that LOVETT will receive, honors those “whose significant career achievements are equally informed by their creative spirit and by their contributions to the role that a music creator can play in the greater community,” according to ASCAP.com.
"LYLE LOVETT has forged a decades-long, award-winning career by committing to his own unique creative vision: in his songwriting, in his roles in film and television, and as a performer. He is often backed by his 'LARGE BAND,' a musical collective that brings his singular fusion of AMERICAN musical styles to life in grand fashion," said ASCAP President and Chairman Of The Board, PAUL WILLIAMS. "His passions also extend to advocating on behalf of his fellow music creators, and LYLE has often journeyed to WASHINGTON, DC to talk with legislators to help protect copyright. He is a musical hero in more ways than one, and we are thrilled to present him with the ASCAP ‘Creative Voice Award’," he continued.
