A CMA GALLERY (HOT CHICKEN SERVED SEPARATELY)

Biz heavies and top artists got fancy for the flashbulbs on CMA night, and then sent the pics to us so we could supply our ridiculous captions.

Ebullient Sony Music ruler Rob Stringer and Sony Music Nashville boss Randy Goodman join team members and artists including CMA winners Lil Nas X, Maren Morris, Luke Combs, Old Dominion for this festive group shot. Later, the fringe on Lil Nas' shirt was signed to a three-album deal. Seen are (l-r) Lil Nas, SMN COO Ken Robold, OD's Trevor Rosen, Stringer, OD's Geoff Sprung, Morrs, Ryan Hurd, Goodman, OD's Brad Tursi, Combs, OD's Whit Sellers and Matthew Ramsey, SMN EVP Promotion and Artist Development Steve Hodges and Chris Young.

WMG Recorded Music topper Max Lousada cheers Warner Music Nashville overlord Espo and winners Dan + Shay, Devin Dawson (who co-penned Single winner "God's Country"), Blake Shelton and Ashley McBryde. Later, Lousada wondered why he'd never had his tea with bourbon before. Seen thinking this photo would work well in grayscale are (l-r) Dan + Shay's Dan Smyers, Dawson, Lousada, WMN EVP A&R Scott Hendricks, Espo, Dan + Shay's Shay Mooney, Shelton and McBryde.


UMG Nashville chief Mike Dungan and prexy Cindy Mabe congratulate multi-talented co-host/performer/nominee Carrie Underwood and other roster standouts, several of whom contributed performances on the show. Later, Mike live-tweeted the impeachment hearings. Seen denying any quid pro quo are (back, l-r) Jon Pardi, Brothers Osborne’s John Osborne and TJ Osborne, Dungan and (front, l-r) Maddie & Tae's Tae Dye, Underwood, Mabe and Maddie & Tae's Maddie Marlow.


Scooter Braun and partner/BMLG head Scott Borchetta salute singer/songwriter and nominee Lindsay Ell, who was also a standout performer on the telecast. Later, the three took a quick spin around the auditorium in one of Scott's Ferraris.
