CMA HONORS NASHVILLE'S BEST ROAD WARRIORS
1/24/17


The 2017 CMA Touring Awards (formerly known as the SRO Awards)—hosted by five-time CMA Award-winner Kristian Bush—took place at Marathon Music Works in Nashville yesterday.

19-time CMA winners Brooks & Dunn presented Randy "Baja" Fletcher with the inaugural CMA Touring Lifetime Achievement Award.

KP Entertainment's Kerri Edwards was recognized as Manager of the Year, WME's Jay Williams was dubbed Talent Agent of the Year and Live Nation's Brian O'Connell walked away from the evening as Talent Buyer/Promoter of the Year,  while the award for Tour Manager went to Tom Addison for his work with Dierks Bentley, and the Publicist award went to Essential Broadcast Media's Ebie McFarland.

As Bentley put it, “These guys represent all of us on the road. These awards are for the folks that make the wheels go ‘round and I’m so proud of every person that works hard night after night to make it all happen. It’s a tough job, but it’s so much fun and it’s all worth it when you can share your success with great people.”

Meanwhile, we're still hoping to be recognized with a trophy for Most Truck Stop Food Consumed in One Sitting some day.
