Offering a star-studded celebration during the final day of CRS, Big Machine Label Group showcased superstars and in-demand newcomers at the Omni hotel in Nashville on 3/1.

Hosting a bevy of Country radio and industry execs, BMLG President & CEO Scott Borchetta invited the room to preview their eclectic roster of talent alongside imprint leaders like Nashville Harbor Records & Entertainment President/CEO Jimmy Harnen, The Valory Music Co. President George Briner and Big Machine Records EVP/GM Kris Lamb.

Performers at the luncheon included Lady A, Carly Pearce, Brian Kelley, Riley Green, Chris Janson, Jackson Dean, Greylan James and Mackenzie Carpenter, as well as a surprise set from Capitol Nashville’s Dierks Bentley.

Borchetta closed out the shindig by bringing out two more special guests, Oklahomans Garth Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, to perform their latest single “Rodeo Man.”
