BILLBOARD: ASCAP TAPS JOHN MELLENAMP FOR FOUNDERS AWARD 
ASCAP’s highest honor, The Founders Award, went to John Mellencamp for his exceptional contributions to music. Talk show host Tavis Smiley, who presented the award, gave a moving introduction about Mellencamp’s “Authority Song” being the anthem that he and fellow students at Indiana University-- in Mellencamp's hometown of Bloomington -- adopted as they protested the death of a black student named Denver Smith, who was killed by white officers after they shot him six times in the back. 
In a passionate speech, Mellencamp talked about “growing up in public with my songwriting. It was a good thing for me back then, in the early ‘70s, that there was a thing called artist development, when artists could find themselves and their voice,” he said. “I think I made five or six albums before I sold five or six albums. Lucky for me I came along at that time. Now, today, there is no artist development and I’m not sure I’d want to become a songwriter today." Read the complete Billboard.com article (along with several others) covering the evening onMellencamp.com.
