ASCAP finally managed to corner Don Williams long enough to honor him.

The notoriously reclusive singer — who even managed to be absent from the ceremony when he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame — not only showed up at Nashville’s Opryland Hotel Sunday night (Nov. 6) to be presented ASCAP’s Golden Note award, he also stayed on to sing two of his classic hits to the adoring crowd.

Williams’ appearance was the highlight of ASCAP’s 49th annual Country Music Awards celebration that spotlighted 50 of the past year’s most-performed country songs, their composers and their publishers.

ASCAP is one of three major performing rights societies which collect and distribute performance royalties to songwriters and music publishers.
