ASCAP, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, will present Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and author LeAnn Rimes with the ASCAP Golden Note Award in a special ASCAP Experience session broadcast @ASCAP on YouTube on October 12 at 3PM ET/ 12PM PT.
With congratulatory video tributes from Reba McEntire, Diane Warren, Rob Thomas, Mickey Guyton, San Francisco Gay Men's Choir, David Gray and Aloe Blacc, the award presentation by ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams will segue into an exclusive conversation with Variety’s Chris Willman.
In “The Story So Far: Celebrating 25+ Years of LeAnn Rimes,” Rimes, marking the 25th anniversary of her debut album Blue, will talk with Willman about her remarkable life in music so far and how her artistry and her humanitarian work intertwine, including her recently released album, god’s work.
“From the moment we first heard her immortal recording of “Blue” – back when she was just 13 years old – we knew that LeAnn was a voice for the ages,” said ASCAP President and Chairman Paul Williams. “In the 25 years since, we have watched her navigate her evolving career with grace, artistry and humanity. Her passion, clarity and emotion have won her fans around the world and truly set her apart as a songwriter.”
