This is the beginning of the AP story on Stevie Wonder being awarded the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song:
President Barack Obama on Wednesday thanked musician Stevie Wonder for creating “a style that’s uniquely American” as he presented the singer-songwriter the nation’s highest award for pop music.
Now, if anyone had asked me before I read that, "What is the nation's highest award for pop music?" I would have said "The Grammy" without hesitation. I realize I would have been wrong, since the Grammy is an industry award, not a national award.
But now that I have this new information, it really begs the question: What is the nation's second highest award for pop music?
