ESPO GOES LIVE
1/24/18


Last night in Music City, Warner Music Nashville Chairman and CEO John Esposito hosted what we understand to be the first of many quarterly installments of #LiveFromEspo's

The gathering brought WMN executives and industry leaders to Espo's home for a live preview of singer Michael Ray's forthcoming album, which has yet to be named but is expected this spring. 

We assume our invitation to this intimate shindig was lost in the mail.
