Songwriter BOB DIPIERO was presented the CMA CHAIRMAN'S AWARD by CMA Board Chairman ED HARDY during the CMA Board of Directors meeting TODAY (11/20) in NASHVILLE.
"BOB has been a creative force and passionate supporter of songwriters and the CMA SONGWRITERS SERIES in the U.S. and EUROPE -- expanding the genre and creating new fans everywhere he goes," said HARDY. "BOB is highly regarded as a songwriter, but serving with him on the CMA Board, I have a much deeper appreciation for his business acumen, his absolute dedication to the creative process, and his trademark sense of humor."
The CHAIRMAN'S AWARD is given annually at the discretion of the Chairman of the Board. At the presentation, HARDY praised DIPIERO’s leadership and tireless efforts on behalf of the format and CMA SONGWRITERS SERIES, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2014.
"This award is truly a highlight of my ongoing career," said DIPIERO. "To be awarded this by ED HARDY in front of the CMA Board members humbles me. The dream goes on."
