The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) celebrated its 28th Annual Pop Music Awards on Wednesday, and awarded top songwriters and publishers.

As announced at ASCAP’s official website, Rod Stewart received the Founders Award on Wednesday night held at the Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, California.

Stewart, 66, a British singer and songwriter, was noted for being one of the most popular enduring recording and concert stars of the past four decades.

Rod Stewart was known to have co-written a lot of his hit songs “Young Turks”, “Tonight’s the Night,” “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “You’re in My Heart”, back in the 70s.

The song “Forever Young” released in 1988 was written by Stewart, but a controversy surfaced as some of the lyrics were said to be a cover of a Bob Dylan song, in which reports say that the two later agreed to share royalties of that song.

Meanwhile, Band of Horses received the ASCAP’s Vanguard Award and Randy Bachman was given the ASCAP Global Impact Award.
