Chugg Gets Award

Michael Chugg was presented with the Walker-Meador International Award in Nashville by the Country Music Association.

The award honoured the veteran promoter’s role in promoting country music outside the U.S. — in this case, touring acts Brooks & Dunn, Dixie Chicks, Willie Nelson, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw.

The Award was presented at the CMA Festival by CMA board chairman Steve Moore, with CMA board members Jeff Walker, President of AristoMedia/Marco Promotions, and Rob Potts, CEO of Sydney-based Rob Potts Entertainment Edge, in attendance.
