The CMA Fest kicked off Thursday (6/6) in Nashville, where WMN braved the scorching Tennessee temps for its Heatwave House event at Barstool Nashville.

Attendees were treated to performances by William Beckahm, Matt Schuster, The Castellows, Braxton Keith, Chase Matthew, Dasha, Cole Swindell, Tyler Braden and Drew Parker.

No party would be complete without the team who made it happen. WMN Co-President/Co-Chair Cris Lacy and Warner Records VP, A&R Kelly Bolton were among the many on deck to celebrate day one of the annual music extravaganza. While we, of course, were barred from the premises, we did get our grimy little hands on a photo or two.

Pictured above, standing, are (l-r) Dasha Management’s Alex Lund, WMN SVP Strategic Marketing & Analytics Victoria Mason, WMN VP Artist Development Jamie Younger, WMN VP Radio Anna Cage, Bolton, WMN SVP Radio & Commercial Partnerships Kristen Williams, WMN Director of Radio Accounts James Marsh, WMN VP Radio Accounts Tom Martens, Warner SVP Streaming Strategy Axel Hyge and Warner’s Director Media & Strategic Development Connor Hunt.

Kneeling: Lacy, Warner’s VP Adult Formats & Analytic Jeremy Rubin, Dasha, Warner’s VP Streaming & Revenue Ben Farber and Dasha Management’s Katy Cooper.

Whew, now we need a cold drink.
