NASHVILLE, April 20 (UPI) -- Songwriter Ed Cash was honored this weekend at the BMI Christian Music Awards in Nashville with a songwriter of the year award.

Thanks to his writing efforts with the songs "Made to Worship" and "How Can I Keep from Singing," Cash took top songwriting honors at the annual event, which recognizes Christian music's most popular works, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Sunday.

Cash also scored big in 2007 with the song "Holding Onto You," which performer Paul Colman helped earn a spot among Christian radio's most popular songs of the year.

Thanks to eight award-winning songs last year, Universal Music Publishing Group won top publisher of the year honors at Saturday's ceremony at BMI's Music Row headquarters, The Tennessean said.

The awards ceremony was part of 2008's Gospel Music Association Music Week, the newspaper said. It was paired with a concert at Nashville's Sommet Center by the Christian rock band Casting Crowns.
