ROUND ROBIN, ONLY IN A STRAIGHT LINE

Team Sony/ATV celebrates being named Pubco of the Year at the BMI Country Awards for the 14th consecutive time—prompting chieftain Marty Bandier to offer a cheroot to Nashville head Troy Tomlinson. Seen wondering if there will be a tear in their mojitos are (l-r) BMI's Jody Williams and Phil Graham, Sony/ATV Nashville SVPs Terry Wakefield and Josh Van Valkenburg, Bandier, Tomlinson, BMI's Michael O'Neil, Sony/ATV Co-Prexy Danny Strick, Sony/ATV Nashville's Abbey Adams, Mark Abramowitz, Tom Luteran, Ed Williams and Hannah Williams.

Sony/ATV writers Ross Copperman, Brett Eldredge and Heather Morgan won Song of the Year for Eldredge's "Beat of the Music." This was one of 26 of the pubco's songs to receive performance awards, alongside hits written or co-written  by Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell, Rhett Atkins and Tyler Farr, among others.
