Here’s a brief look at some of the other top honors-

Carrie Underwood’s Jesus, Take The Wheel received ASCAP Country Song of the Year. Hillary Lindsey, along with co-writers Brett James and Gordie Sampson did an amazing rendition of the hit song.

John Rich received ASCAP Songwriter/Artist of the Year for several of his hits like All Jacked Up, Big Time, and Like We Never Loved At All.

Brett James and Rivers Rutherford shared the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year honor.

Immediately following the awards show, everyone made their way over to the BellSouth Building for the official Post Awards Party. Jon Bon Jovi and John Rich both stopped by for the late night shenanigans.
