Performing rights organization Broadcast Music Inc. held its 67th BMI Country Awards on Nov. 12 to honor its Songwriters of the Year, Song of the Year and Publisher of the Year, as well as present Dwight Yoakam with its President’s Award.

A number of country stars took the stage to honor Dwight, including Jon Pardi (“Guitars, Cadillacs”), Margo Price and Bob Weir (“Fast as You”), and The Highwomen (A Thousand Miles from Nowhere”).

Both Nicolle Galyon and Ross Copperman were awarded Songwriter of the Year, while Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” earned Song of the Year. Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Group took home Publisher of the Year. BMI also bestowed the inaugural Evergreen Award (posthumously) to Felice and Boudleaux Bryant for penning “Rocky Top.”
