AMAs producers Dick Clark Productions announced today it has reached an agreement with Swift's former record label, Big Machine Label Group, to license her old songs for the ABC awards show broadcast. Swift will perform her old songs as part of receiving the AMAs' Artist of the Decade honor. “The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions announce that they have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms," both companies said in a statement. "This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances. It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media. Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed.” As Variety notes, "the detente follows last week’s Swift-Braun-Borchetta flare up involving the sort of music business minutiae that doesn’t commonly interest the general public — the particulars of re-recording old masters. As it relates to the AMAs, an argument could be made that a west coast broadcast of a live show is, technically, a taped version of a song."
