SAY CHEESE, OR ACTUALLY, DON'T: IT'S HITS' WEEKLY PHOTO GALLERY

We're hitting you hard and soft with this week's aggregation of industry photos featuring the biz peeps you love to peep. You'll find a vintage Billie (with Justin and Janick), a genre-spanning ACMs moment, a Virgin family portrait, a couple of rock legends, Guy and Carianne and much more.
