Taylor Swift added yet another impressive accolade to her resume last week when she took home BMI’s prestigious Pop Songwriter of the Year award at their annual ceremony. Held at the lavish Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills on June 4th, the event honors the most performed songs on pop radio over the past year as determined by BMI’s analytics.

Swift dominated the songwriter categories, having penned a stunning 10 of the most played tracks across radio and streaming in 2023. Fan favorites like “Anti-Hero,” “Bejeweled,” “Cruel Summer,” and “Karma” underscored her incredible versatility and commercial prowess. At just 34, Swift has amassed an astonishing 65 BMI awards over her career thus far, a true testament to her unparalleled skill with a pen.

The awards ceremony came off the heels of Swift’s record-breaking 7th Grammy nod for “Anti-Hero” in the coveted Song of the Year category last November. With this new BMI honor, she solidified her hard-earned title as a creative force like no other in the industry today.

Miley Cyrus took home Song of the Year for her Billboard number one smash “Flowers,” which also nabbed two Grammys earlier this year. Sony Music Publishing maintained their dominant streak, collecting Publisher of the Year for the seventh consecutive time thanks to representing a whopping 34 of the most played tracks.
