SAY NARM! ER...CHEESE: MUSIC BIZ '17 PICS

During Music Biz 2017, UMG Nashville ruler Mike Dungan, who received the Presidential Award at the confab, joins his team for a festive photo op that’s equal parts Biz and pleasure. Seen just before fishing for bass in the fountain at the Renaissance are (l-r) UMG’s Troy Scott, UMG Nashville’s Sr. Director, Streaming & Digital Marketing Annie Ortmeier, SVP A&R Brian Wright, Prexy Cindy Mabe, COO Mike Harris, Dungan, Executive Assistant Dottie Chamberlain, VP National Sales Pam Russell, SVP Promo Royce Risser, Director, Creative Services Michelle Hall and EVP/GM UMG Commercial Partnerships Candace Berry.

Spotify’s Troy Carter, a keynote speaker at the Nashville gathering, is flanked by Music Biz chief Jim Donio (r) and The Tennessean’s Nate Rau in this charming tableau, shortly before Jim curated a playlist of his least favorite trade publications.

Music Biz ruler Donio and Breakthrough Artist Maren Morris ponder the resume of newly appointed independent counsel Robert Mueller. Later, they hatched a concept album about James Comey's memos.

 

Sustained Creative Achievement Award Winner Reba McEntire, Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta and Paula Abdul recalled the halcyon days of potential FBI leader Joe Lieberman's crusade against dirty records.

 

BuzzAngle Music head Jim Lidestri offered to make a chart of the above photos for Music Biz chairman Fred Beteille, McEntire and Donio.
