The Country Music Association presented its ninth annual Triple Play Awards Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 20, during a private industry luncheon at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works, awarding songwriters who have penned three No. 1 songs within a 12-month period based on the Country Aircheck, Billboard Country Airplay and Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Hosted by Troy Tomlinson, Sony/ATV Music Publishing President and CEO and CMA Board member, trophies were handed out to 15 songwriters this year: Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman, Zach Crowell, Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley, Ben Hayslip, Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Matthew Ramsey, Thomas Rhett, Trevor Rosen, Brad Tursi, Brad Warren and Brett Warren.

Gorley received three trophies in recognition of nine No. 1 songs, bringing his all-time total to 11 Triple Play Awards and making him the most-awarded Triple Play Awards recipient of all time. McAnally received two trophies in recognition of his six No. 1 songs. Thomas Rhett received his first-ever Triple Play Award this year; his father, Akins, was also a recipient this year, marking the first time a father and son received Triple Play Awards in a single year. Throughout the ceremony, videos recorded by each songwriter played before each award was presented, ranging from heartfelt congratulations to hilarious skits.
