Top Songwriters Chart is the first chart to recognize top songwriters in the US.

Using data from Billboard Radio Songs and Digital Songs charts (full methodology here), Songtrust showcases the immense talents of today's most versatile and successful writers.

At the end of 2011, we published our first-ever chart and now we're kicking off monthly charts: including overall top writers, and those specifically from country and hip hop genres.
