Sheryl Crow's Speech as she presented Stevie with the songwriting award at the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards on April 11

"It's often been said that we should never meet our heros for fear of disappointment. I am proud to say I have met my hero and she's more wonderful than I could ever have imagined. I had the great opportunity of working with Stevie in the studio, and singing with her on stage. And every time she opens her mouth and I hear her voice I am reminded of what it was that I wanted to be when I grew up. Whether with Fleetwood Mac or as a massively popular solo artist, her magic has always started with her incredible distinctive songs: from "Rhiannon" and "Dreams," to "Gypsy" and "Edge of Seventeen," to "Stand Back" and her latest work . . . these songs reflect her openness as a human being, as well as her power as a storyteller. She's an inspiration, a hero, a friend, an open beautiful person ~ and for all those reasons and more, it's my priviledge to acknowledge Miss Stephanie Nicks for her artistic achievement as a storyteller and songwriter. Stevie, on behalf of everyone your songs touch, we love you!"

Stevie's Acceptance Speech:

"Since this award is for songwriting, I wanted to say a little bit to you, very quickly, about songwriting. In 1975 when I first joined Fleetwood Mac, I really thought, how am I going to plan this out. I'm uh, I'm gonna plan it, and I did, I planned it and I decided to try to make little worlds for you guys to come with me into for a little while, and I think that is what I love the most about my writing. So I thank you all for coming into that little world with me, even if it's just for a minute of your time, and being with me because that's what I do. I love you and thank you so much."
