CRS DAY 2: WMN SMOKES 'EM OUT
2/21/20

Warner Music Nashville kept the party going during day two of CRS 2020 with multiple hangs across Music City. In addition to a bourbon tasting with Brett Eldredge and a special women's empowerment dinner, Chris Janson hosted a cigar bar downtown at Red Phone Booth for radio and streaming friends.

There was a rumor at the cigar hang about a family of sparrows living in John Marks' beard that couldn't be confirmed at presstime, but Janson is now writing a song about it.

Later that evening, Ashley McBryde offered guests a musical nightcap with a performance at the Omni, where she previewed songs for her forthcoming album, Never Will, due 4/3. Pictured below are CRS party animals David Corey (WKLB/Boston), McBryde, WMN boss John Esposito and WMN's Kristen Williams.
