Shakira, Adam Levine, Sheryl Crow and Lady Antebellum were among the stars who paid tribute to singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks at the BMI Pop Awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday night.

The Fleetwood Mac star was feted with the Icon Award during the songwriting ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and a number of artists took to the stage during the show to honor Nicks by performing some of her most famous songs.

Maroon 5 frontman Levine teamed up with Crow to perform “Leather and Lace,” country stars Lady Antebellum played “Rhiannon,” singer Vanessa Carlton gave an interpretation of “Dreams,” while Shakira sang “Landslide.”

Upon accepting the award, Nicks told the audience, “This is one of the best nights of my life. We are reporters – we songwriters write songs about life, not just love… I wrote my first song when I was 15 and a half, and this is what you have to look forward to if you really want to do this.”

Other awards went to Levine, who was named Songwriter of the Year along with Ryan Lewis and his collaborator Macklemore, and producer/songwriter Jeff Bhasker.

The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” was named Song of the Year, while other featured tracks included “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, “Roar” by Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors,” and “I Knew You Were Trouble” by Taylor Swift.
