Hillary Lindsey has won the ACM’s Songwriter Of The Year Award this year, becoming just the second woman in ACM history to do so.
Lindsey, who is a Grammy and CMA Awards winner, was previously nominated for the award in 2017 and 2018 but failed to win. This year, she swept past Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy, Josh Osborne, and two-time winner Shane McAnally to win the award.
The only other female artist to bag the ACM Songwriter of the Year award, Lori McKenna – also from The Love Junkies, won it 2017.
Lindsey’s recent No. 1 songs include Luke Bryan‘s “Knockin’ Boots” and “What She Wants Tonight.” She also co-wrote “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” a song for Miranda Lambert‘s album, Wildcard, along with her Love Junkies co-writers McKenna and Liz Rose.
Other songs Lindsey penned include “Till There’s Nothing Left” for Cam, “Hole in the Bottle” for Kelsea Ballerini, and “You Kissed Me First” and “Hide the Wine” for Carly Pearce.
The 2020 ACM Awards took place on September 16, 2020, with Keith Urban hosting the show for the first time.
