The panel was introduced by CMA Sr Director of Market Research Karen Stump, moderated by UMG Nashville VP of Marketing - Digital Accounts Annie Ortmeier and featured speakers like Amazon's Emily Cohen, Pandora's Beville Dunkerley, YouTube's Margaret Hart and Spotify's Brittany Schaffer. 

The CMA also sponsored the Awards Breakfast & Presentations where the Presidential Award for Outstanding Executive Achievement was presented to RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman, and the Independent Spirit Award was presented to owners of Dimple RecordsThe Radakovitz Family

The gathering also saw a performance from Kelsea Ballerini, who sang “Legends” and "Love Me Like You Mean It" as well as current chart-rising single “I Hate Love Songs."
