Songwriting alumnus Devin Dawson received the Breakthrough Artist/Writer of the Year Award at this week’s MusicRow Awards

In his acceptance speech, Dawson said, “Anybody who knows me, knows that I LOVE songwriting. Artistry and songwriting go hand-in-hand for me. I was a Belmont student, and I remember reading in MusicRow about all the songwriters I wanted to be. So this is kind of ‘full circle’ for me.”

Former adjunct faculty member, and Songwriters Hall of Fame member, Tom Douglas also earned Song of the Year honors at the event for the Chris Janson-recorded hit, “Drunk Girl.”
