Last night's (4/17) T.J. Martell Foundation's 4th Annual Ambassador of the Year Roast & Toast kicked off with a "Bad A$$" toast from last year's Ambassador, UMGN Chairman/CEO Mike Dungan, who got in a zinger or two before raising his glass to welcome incoming Bad A$$, Warner Music Nashville Chairman/CEO John Esposito. Taking the stage to roast Espo were Warner/Chappell's Ben Vaughn, LiveNation's Brian O’Connell, Sony ATV's Troy Tomlinson, WMG's Matt Signore, Dan + Shay's Dan Smyers, John Oates and McGhee Entertainment's Doc McGhee. The event was sponsored by George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey and raised $50,000 for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research.
