The trio will also be presented with NMPA GOLD and PLATINUM awards for writing their certified hits including "Bartender," "Need You Now," and "I Run To You." LADY ANTEBELLUM will headline the SPRING SONGWRITER SHOWCASE, which will also recognize the Congressional sponsors of the SONGWRITER EQUALITY ACT.
"It doesn't get any bigger or any better than LADY ANTEBELLUM when it comes to songwriting, singing, and caring about the future of creators," said NMPA CEO/President DAVID ISRAELITE. "HILLARY, CHARLES, and DAVE are all songwriters in their own right, and what's more, they have not forgotten where they came from and what it took to get where they are. They continue to stand up for creators who struggle to make a living under the streaming regime, and we are thrilled to honor them with our SONGWRITER ICON AWARD."
