Brian O'Connell To Be Honored

Live Nation President/Country Music Touring Brian O'Connell will be honored with the CMA Touring Lifetime Achievement Award at the Jan. 22 CMA Touring Awards in Nashville. "This is absolutely not a reflection of anything I have done on my own, rather my incredible team in Nashville, Michael Rapino, Bob Roux and the rest of Live Nation giving us the latitude and guidance to achieve lofty goals, and most importantly the artist community, including the agents, managers and road warriors who make it all possible," O'Connell says.
