NASHVILLE, Tenn. - They are the heartbeat of Music City, but don't get recognition nearly enough. We're talking about songwriters. Monday evening the performing rights organization ASCAP held its 51st annual awards show to celebrate the success of their top writers. Many people simply just don't know that most of the time the artist either didn't write the song you hear on the radio, or they have a team of talented co-workers. Well, Monday night was their night to shine. From Songwriter and Song of the Year to the top 5 most played country songs of the year, ASCAP's best writers are getting recognition they deserve. We had a chance to talk with several ASCAP writers on the red carpet.
