The 'Drivers License' hitmaker and the musician/songwriter, who created her breakout albums 'Sour' and 'Guts', are recognized for their exceptional talents at the event.

AceShowbiz - Olivia Rodrigo and her longtime collaborator Dan Nigro have triumphed as the 2024 Songwriters of the Year by ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers). The duo, who have collaborated on several songs over the past few years, received the honor at the organization's annual awards ceremony.

Rodrigo, 21, and Nigro, 41, were recognized for their outstanding songwriting on the tracks "Vampire" and "Bad Idea, Right?" from Rodrigo's 2023 sophomore album, "GUTS". ASCAP lauded their work, describing them as "a true pop dream team" and praising their "bold, grunge-inspired" album that garnered critical acclaim and chart-topping success.

"After taking the world by storm with 'Sour', the two followed up with a bona fide modern masterpiece in 2023: 'Guts'," ASCAP stated. "Their bold, grunge inspired sophomore record brought critical acclaim, mainstream obsession, a sold out world tour and hits topping the charts."

Nigro expressed his gratitude for the recognition on social media, thanking ASCAP and acknowledging his humble beginnings. "Thank you so much to ASCAP for naming Olivia and I as Songwriters of the year!!!" he wrote. "And thank you to @chappellroan for presenting me the award, and reminding the world about my Pizza Hut days... feeling very grateful today."

Rodrigo, who previously won the Songwriter of the Year award in 2022, has consistently emphasized the significance of songwriting in her life. "Songwriting is the thing I take most seriously in my life. It's the most personally gratifying, too," she shared in an interview. "At the core of it, all my songs are about me and my experiences and my feelings. It's an important lesson in controlling your own narrative, too."
