Brandi Carlile will receive the National Music Publishers’ Association‘s (NMPA) Songwriter Icon Award at the 2023 annual meeting.
In a statement about Carlile, NMPA president/CEO David Israelite said the singer-songwriter is “in a class of her own. A critical success who has become a cultural and commercial force, she consistently has delivered stunning lyrics and vocals that cut to the heart of the human experience. We are thrilled to celebrate what she has given and continue to give to the craft of songwriting.”
The NMPA annual meeting, which takes place at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall on June 14, will feature a keynote conversation with Warner Music Group CEO Robert Kyncl.
