Quantcast

A CMA GALLERY

UMG Nashville topper Mike Dungan and prexy Cindy Mabe congratulate Album of the Year winner Kacey Musgraves, who caused the two execs to rethink everything they ever felt about the color orange. Later, Mike got into it with some dude on Facebook.

"I'm not certain what a 'Fireball' is," muses Sony Music boss Rob Stringer, "but it reminds me of the time my Uncle Edmond ingested a lit cigar—in a good way." Seen just before someone suggested a "boys against the girls" pool tournament and the dudes got their clocks cleaned are (l-r) Sony Nashville EVP/COO Ken Robold, Vocal Group of the Year Old Dominion's Whit SellersRobert Counts, Stringer, OD's Brad Tursi and Geoff Sprung, New Artist winner Luke Combs, SMN chief Randy Goodman, OD's Matthew RamseyMaren Morris, OD's Trevor RosenMiranda Lambert, SMN EVP Marketing & New Business John ZarlingPistol Annies' Ashley MonroeTenille Townes, Pistol Annies' Angaleena Presley and Rachel Wammack.


Music Video of the Year winner and Valory/BMLG artist Thomas Rhett is flanked by the label's George Briner and skipper Scott Borchetta. Later, some dudes asked to chat with Scott about a dumptruck full of money.


WMG Recorded Music overlord Max Lousada and Warner Music Nashville head John Esposito pose with artists Brett Eldredge, Bebe Rexha and James Blunt. Speaking of blunts, Espo has very little recollection of the ensuing three hours.

Dungan and Mabe join Entertainer of the Year Keith Urban, Duo of the Year Brothers Osborne, Jon Pardi, Female Vocalist of the Year Carrie Underwood, Eric Church and Kassi Ashton shortly before turning off their phones to avoid a Skype call from our own Todd Hensley.
