Steppin' Out Sunday: Kenny the new Voice of Music.

THE American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) will present Kenny Chesney with the ASCAP Voice of Music Award during the 43rd Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards gala.

The invitation-only awards show will take place on Monday, October 17, 2005, at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.

The event will also honor the songwriters and publishers of ASCAP's most performed country songs of 2004.

The prestigious Voice of Music Award is given to recognised artists and songwriters whose music gives people's lives a voice through song.

Kenny Chesney joins a select group of four songwriters who have previously received this award: Garth Brooks, George Strait, Diane Warren and Amy Grant.

Marilyn Bergman, ASCAP President and Chairman of the Board, said: "Kenny is a unique artist who has the ability to captivate millions with songs that are honest, heartfelt and entertaining.

"He is a superstar, yes, but he is a songwriter first."

In the past year, Chesneyhas sold more concert tickets than any other artist in any genre, with the exception of Prince. He is the only Country artist to headline stadiums this summer, rocking Pittsburgh, Boston and Washington, DC.
