Dr. Luke, Max Martin named songwriters of the year at ASCAP Pop Music AwardsComments (0) April 28, 2011 |  5:14pm

ASCAP Dr. Luke and Max Martin spent most of the last year cramming both the radio and the pop charts with sticky singles from Katy Perry, Ke$ha and Usher.

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers clearly took note of that profile and awarded the duo big at its 28th annual pop music awards Wednesday.

The event was held at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, where the two shared the honor of being named songwriters of the year.

Dr. Luke, born Lukasz Gottwald, and Martin tied for the award, as the duo penned five of the most performed songs of 2010 together, including Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and “Teenage Dream,” as well as “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz. It’s the fourth time Martin has received the honor.
Martin also won for “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love” by Usher with Pitbull, and “Whataya Want From Me” by Adam Lambert, who presented the award to the Swedish songwriter-producer. Dr. Luke was also honored for Miley Cyrus‘ “Party in the USA” and Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok.” The songwriter-producer has had 20 No. 1 songs over the last five years, 17 ASCAP Awards (he was named songwriter of the year last year) and a Top 10 spot on Billboard’s producers of the decade list.

Special trophies were also presented to Rod Stewart, who was honored with the ASCAP Founders Award; Band of Horses, which received ASCAP’s Vanguard Award; and Randy Bachman, who was presented the ASCAP Global Impact Award. 

Awards were also presented to the songwriters and publishers of ASCAP’s most performed pop songs of 2010, including Smeezington’s producer Ari Levine, who scooped up three awards for “Billionaire” (Travie McCoy), “Just the Way You Are” (Bruno Mars) and “Nothin’ on You” (B.o.B.), and Norwegian production duo Stargate’s Mikkel Eriksen and Tor Hermansen, who won for Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In the World)” and “Rude Boy.”
Pat Monahan, lead singer of the Grammy Award-winning band Train, collected the song of the year award for “Hey Soul Sister,” and the ASCAP publisher of the year honors went to EMI Music Publishing, which had 19 of the most performed songs of 2010.
