Jerry Foster and his writing partner Bill Roce hold the records for the most ASCAP awards for one year.- 11. One year when they won ten, ASCAP didn't announce the winners for ten different categories,; instead, they brought out the 10 awards on a wheel barrow that was painted gold.......pretty cool.
