WARNER NASHVILLE CELEBRATES AT CRS LUNCHEON
2/19/20

Warner Music Nashville began the 2020 Country Radio Seminar on 2/19 with its 2nd annual kick-off luncheon, anchored by country star and Artist Humanitarian Award honoree Kenny Chesney, who headlined the event.

Other performers included ACM winner and Grand Ole Opry member Chris Janson, three-time chart topper Michael Ray, multi-Grammy nominee and ACM/CMA New Artist of the Year Ashley McBryde, as well as Gabby Barrett, Cody Johnson and newcomer Shy Carter.

Following the performances, Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) Board President Kurt Johnson presented Chesney with the Artist Humanitarian Award, sponsored by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Pictured above, just before Espo proclaimed that in order to gain access to the free buffet everyone had to wear only shades of blue, are (back, l-r) CRB Executive Director RJ Curtis, WMN EVP A&R Scott Hendricks, WMN EVP A&R Cris Lacy, WMN Chairman/CEO John Esposito, WMN SVP Radio Kristen Williams, Johnson, WMN EVP/GM Ben Kline; (front, l-r): Johnson, McBryde, Janson, Chesney, Ray, Barrett and Carter.
