BMI Icon Awards

Mariah Carey receives BMI Icon award, image from rollingstone.com

On September 8, 2012, Mariah Carey received the BMI Urban Icon Award. Carole King received the BMI Pop Icon Award on May 15 and it was previously announced that Tom T. Hall would receive the BMI Icon Award at the country ceremonies in October.

BMI is an organization which collects royalties on behalf of artists. It gives out annual Icon awards in various categories in honor of what the website calls a songwriter’s “unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.” The BMI site does not appear to offer any details when these awards were initiated (although the earliest awards appear to be given in 2002) and also fails to provide one easy-access list which would detail all recipients, categories in which they received the award, and the year. As such, the list below is stitched together from multiple sources to provide as much detail as possible:
