At Sir Lucian Grainge's huge UMG pre-Grammy showcase event in L.A. (where the band killed, by the way), BMLG topper Scott Borchetta engages in a typically solemn and businesslike photographic opportunity with the members of Midland, until the purposeful vibe is interrupted by the drunken rantings of BRND MGMT's Matt Graham. Meanwhile, CAA's Brett Saliba visualized a lucrative Old Grand-Dad endorsement. (Photo credit: Manuel Mancilla)

MUSGRAVES ON THE AIRWAVES
2/11/19

Kacey Musgraves' "Rainbow," a sweet highlight of the Grammy telecast and the new single from her Album of the Year-snagging Golden Hour (Mercury Nashville), is off to a strong start at Country radio. The track is #3 Most Added at the format—which has taken mondo heat of late for not playing females—with 37 adds and 53 total stations thus far. It's also well underway at AC.

As the Jason Owen-repped Musgraves, who also took Country Album, Country Song and Country Solo Performance, takes off among consumers (she's #1 at iTunes and trending Top 10 at Apple Music, where hip-hop and R&B tend to rule), how many more programmers—and formats—will come to the table?

"As long as you're all here, perhaps you can explain this Nashville 'hot chicken' business to me,'" said U.K. boss Jason Iley. "What makes the chicken so hot? Does its temperature affect its egg-laying capacity? Is anything being done to cool it down?" Seen just before leading the line dance are (l-r) Kane BrownRyan HurdMaren MorrisClive Davis, Stringer, Randy Goodman, Iley and Luke Combs.

Y'ALL HURD?
2/6/19

"Hello, I’m RCA Nashville singer/songwriter Ryan Hurd. I live a pretty sweet life—recording, touring, being married to an incredible woman. Considering the blessings that have come my way, I want to give back. Which is why I spend some of my spare time mentoring trade-magazine idiots like Todd and Samantha here. They spend their days in a fluorescent-lit Hollywood cubicle, stoned out of their tiny minds and arguing over which lunch place will deliver avocado toast on Postmates. It’s a sad, pathetic existence, but I like to think I can bring them a little sunshine. At least for a few minutes before I run screaming to my Uber.”
