2016 ASCAP Country Music Awards

Ashley Gorley, Ricky Skaggs, Chris Stapleton and Warner/Chappell among top honorees

It’s been a real blessing for me to be an ASCAP member. I can’t say enough about how valuable it is. It’s real easy to want to do things by yourself all the time. But, boy, a career in music can be made a whole lot easier if you have great organizations and people helping you out.

—Chris Stapleton
