SESAC Celebrates Songwriters And Publishers With 2021 Nashville Music Awards
NASHVILLE, TN. (Top40 Charts) SESAC celebrated its songwriters and music publishers behind the year's most-performed country and Americana songs for the 2021 Nashville Music Awards, which took place in a digital format. The annual award winners were announced on the organization's website and social media platforms with exclusive photos and videos from some of country music's top songwriters, publishers, and performers.

"Songwriting and music publishing are at the very core of the music business, and we at SESAC love that we get to honor those contributions," said Scott Jungmichel, President and COO, SESAC PRO. "We are happy to celebrate our top performed songs over the past year."

"We are very proud of the songs we awarded this year," said Shannan Hatch, Vice President of Creative Services. "Our Nashville creative team worked hard to come up with creative, cozy, and safe gatherings to celebrate the successes of our SESAC songwriter and publisher family who won awards. We all look forward to the future when we can safely celebrate with everyone in person."

Niko Moon was named SESAC's Songwriter of the Year for the first time, who's single "Good Time" became his first #1 hit as an artist. Additionally, he penned the chart-topper "Gone," recorded by Dierks Bentley. Lee Brice's seventh #1 hit song, "One Of Them Girls," published by Warner Chappell Music was named SESAC Song of the Year. Warner Chappell Music also took home the Publisher of the Year accolade, most recently winning the award in 2019.
