The Fearless One took home the Song of The Year award for Love Story at the 58th BMI Pop Music Awards ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, California. She was on hand to receive the award. The BMIs also honored John Fogerty as BMI icon and RedOne as Songwriter of the Year. Fogerty performed a medley of his all time favorite hits at the ceremony. Orianthi performed the opening number at the ceremony. You can read the original article at BMI.com.
As re-told by Taylor Swift herself, she penned Love Story on her bedroom for a contest during her high school years. That’s way, way back. Ok, class of 2008. That’s two whole years. In showbiz that’s like… two years. She wrote the song alone.
She also shared an award with co-writer Liz Rose for the Most Performed Pop Song for You Belong With Me. I would have to add this is also the song most covered by other artists, not to mention half of YouTube’s population, both as a parody and as a cover by aspiring singers.
Liz Rose is a known collaborator of Taylor. She has co-written hits such as Tim McGraw and Teardrops On My Guitar from Taylor’s debut album and You Belong With Me, Fearless as well as White Horse which won a Grammy in 2010 for Best Country Song in the pre-awards ceremony. Both Taylor and Liz accepted that Grammy on stage, the same way they did last night at BMI. More about Liz Rose on her page at Wikipedia.
