It was all about the songwriters Monday evening (Nov. 11) in Nashville where Brothers Osborne, Jordan Davis, Midland, Carly Pearce, Cassadee Pope, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Caylee Hammack, The Cadillac Three and many more stepped out at the 2019 ASCAP Country Awards.

Among the honorees were Brothers Osborne, who received the ASCAP Vanguard Award, and Randy Travis, who was presented with the Founders Award.

Prior to the invitation-only show, Country Now hit up the star-studded red carpet to chat with a number of the night’s honorees.

“It definitely makes it feel like all of that, hard trudging through the mud that we did was for something and we’re here tonight taking an award for it, TJ Osborne shared. “What it means for me, is it just restores my faith in just sticking to who we are and continuing to do that.”
