The ASCAP Awards held their annual ceremony honoring the songwriters at the Ryman Auditorium in downtown Nashville.

Those honored included Maddie and Tae for “Fly” plus many more.

“We wrote that when we first moved to town and were just 17 and just like living in an apartment by ourselves,” Maddie & Tae told local news. “It’s pretty cool to be honored for a song you wrote in a tougher time of your life, you know.”

The biggest honors of the night went to Chris Stapleton, receiving the Vanguard Award and to Ricky Skaggs, who received the ASCAP Founders Award.
