The NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas has announced that Paul will be honoured with a special one-off award, the Songwriter’s Songwriter, and will be there to collect the award in person, at the upcoming ceremony.
When NME asked the world’s leading songwriters to nominate the best practitioner of their craft for the one-off Songwriter’s Songwriter award, time and time again they chose Paul. For setting an unmatchable pace in modern music, he’s undoubtedly the songwriter’s songwriter.
Paul is a talent to rank amongst the titans of music – he is indisputably the greatest songwriter alive today, if not of all time.
NME editor Mike Williams says:
"We've spoken to the biggest and best musicians around, and they've told us: Paul McCartney is the world's ultimate songwriter. Paul's enduring and stunning talent is worth celebrating, and I'm incredibly honoured that NME are giving him the special, one-of-its-kind Songwriter's Songwriter award to recognise that.”
