The Johnny Mercer Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and is exclusively reserved for a songwriter or songwriting team who has already been inducted and whose body of work is “of such high quality and impact that it upholds the gold standard set by the legendary Johnny Mercer.”

Warren was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2001.

“I’m beyond honored to receive the Johnny Mercer Award,” Warren said in a statement, “especially looking at the names of the other songwriters who have gotten this great honor. When I was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, my mom was there and finally understood that I could make a living and life being what I was born to be and wake up every day loving to be… a songwriter. Now, both she and my dad will be looking down on me with big smiles on their faces. Thank you, Songwriters Hall of Fame.”

Warren has penned nine #1 and thirty-three top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and is tied for having written the most #1 songs as a sole writer in Billboard history. She has received 15 Academy Award nominations, is a Grammy winner with 15 nominations, an Emmy winner, and a two-time Golden Globe winner whose songs have been featured in more than 150 films.
