CRB Board President Kurt Johnson said, “Scott is one of those you can count on one hand. Music Row visionary and trailblazer, race car driver, television celebrity, entrepreneur, maverick. From his first days in promotion in Nashville to his iconic status today, he continues to be a true original. I hope you’ll be in the room as we celebrate one of the best ever in the business.”
