ASCAP named West songwriter of the year for the fourth time. West has writing credits on Jeremy Camp’s “Keep Me in the Moment,” which reached No. 1 on the Christian Airplay chart in July 2020, and Casting Crowns' “Love Moved First” and “Start Right Here.” A five-time Grammy nominee, West has worked with such top artists as Rascal Flatts, Scotty McCreery, and Amy Grant.
