BMI Icon Awards

Stevie Nicks receives BMI Icon award, image from dailymail.co.uk

BMI is an organization which collects royalties on behalf of artists. It gives out annual Icon awards in various categories, including country, Latin, London, pop, and urban (later changed to R&B/hip-hop), 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 cobbled together from multiple sources to provide as much detail as possible:
