Our favorite time of the year … recognizing career excellence and creativity in our industry with the prestigious Music Biz Awards! This year we will honor Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta with the Presidential Award for Sustained Executive Achievement. Throughout his years in the music business, Scott has demonstrated a keen ear for talent that has led to more than 40 million albums sold by Big Machine artists, not to mention #1 Country and Pop radio smashes (165 in all) in every year over the course of his career. His drive for innovation has also led to Big Machine’s ground-breaking deal with terrestrial radio for performance royalty rights.

Also taking the stage will be Martina McBride to accept the 2015 Harry Chapin Memorial Humanitarian Award for her work on behalf of domestic violence, which includes being the spokesperson for the National Domestic Violence Hotline, National Network to End Domestic Violence, and Tulsa Domestic Violence as well as uniting with Loveisrespect and the National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline to create the “My Time to Shine” program to educate teens on how to have healthy relationships.

The Doobie Brothers will accept the 2015 Chairman’s Award for Sustained Creative Achievement from Board Chairman Fred Beteille of YouTube. The group has sold more than 48 million albums, including three multi-Platinum albums, seven Platinum albums, and 14 Gold albums. In addition, their greatest hits record, Best of the Doobies, has sold over 11 million copies, earning a rare RIAA Diamond certification. The band also landed 16 songs on the Billboard Top 40 – including five Top 10 singles and chart-toppers “What a Fool Believes” and “Black Water” – and won four Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year for “What a Fool Believes” and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for the album Minute by Minute.

Epic Records’ newly-minted Pop star Meghan Trainor will be honored with the 2015 Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award. Prior to achieving massive success with her album, Title, and its smash singles “All About That Bass” and “Lips Are Movin,” Trainor was a high school prodigy who came to Nashville after scoring a publishing deal at the age of 17. While there, she co-wrote tracks for major acts such as Rascal Flatts and Hunter Hayes before breaking through on her own after deciding to record “All About That Bass” herself.
