Photos: BMI Honors Brice, CMA Christmas Cheer, and Ballard Hits the Road

BMI honored Lee Brice’s record-breaking Billboard Song of the Year, “Love Like Crazy,” at a reception at BMI’s Music Row office on December 14. The song, produced by Doug Johnson and co-written by Johnson and Tim James, was on the Billboard Country Singles cart for an unprecedented 56 weeks, breaking Eddy Arnold’s previous record of 54 weeks for “Bouquet of Roses.”

Pictured are (l-r): BMI’s Jody Williams, co-writer Doug Johnson, Lee Brice, co-writer Tim James, Curb Records’ Mike Curb, Curb Publishing’s Drew Alexander, Warner/Chappell’s Steve Markland, and Billboard’s Wade Jessen.

Former CMA Executive Director, Jo Walker-Meador (1959-1991), and current CMA Chief Executive Officer, Steve Moore, celebrate the season at the annual CMA staff Christmas party.
