Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) this week honored the writers and publishers of last year's most-performed Christian songs on U.S. radio and TV during its annual Christian Music Awards, held at the organization's headquarters in Nashville.

Carroll L. McGruder was recognized with his first Songwriter of the Year award for writing two of the songs on the year's most-performed list, "I'm Going Home with Jesus" and "Saved by Grace."

"Where I Belong," written by Building 429 frontman Jason Roy and award-winning songwriter/producer Jason Ingram, was named Christian Song of the Year. Also named Christian Song of the Year by Billboard, the song was published by Havery Publishing and Sony/ATV Tree.

With the highest percentage of copyright ownership among the year's most-performed songs, Word Music Publishing (Dayspring Music) was recognized as Publisher of the Year.

Former Word Entertainment CEO Jim Van Hook was honored with a Special Citation of Appreciation for his years of service and impact on Christian music.

Building 429, Brandon Heath and Steven Curtis Chapman performed during the June 18 event.

"We are continually inspired by the messages of hope and faith spread through the Christian music community," said BMI Vice President and awards co-host Jody Williams.

BMI, a performing rights organization that recognizes the writers and publishers of the most-performed Christian songs on radio and television, presented awards for songs in five categories, including Christian Rock, Contemporary Christian, Inspirational, Urban Gospel and Southern gospel.
