The President and Chairman of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, Paul Williams, said in a press release: “Carly Simon has always poured her heart and soul into her songwriting, and in the process she has helped re-write the rule book on what popular music can achieve and how it can profoundly change people’s lives.
