BMI – Song of the Year:
Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) was founded in 1939 to represent songwriters in multiple musical genres. They have grown to be the largest music rights organization in the United States, representing 14 million musical works created and owned by over 900,000 songwriters, composers, and music publishers.
The BMI Awards got their start in 1952 when the organization launched a pop music award. They have since held awards annually for pop and other genres.
Unfortunately, there does not appear to be an online listing of recipients of the awards. Even the searchable BMI website fails to uncover any complete listings. Here’s the awards assembled as best as possible, dating back only to 1981.
