NASHVILLE's historic RYMAN AUDITORIUM was named POLLSTAR's "Theatre of the Year" at the 22nd Annual POLLSTAR CONCERT INDUSTRY AWARDS last SATURDAY (2/5). This is the RYMAN's third time to win this award, up against nominees like NEW YORK CITY's BEACON THEATER, ATLANTA's FOX THEATER, L.A.'s NOKIA THEATER and NYC's RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL.
GAYLORD ENTERTAINMENT SVP/Media and Entertainment STEVE BUCHANAN told the TENNESSEAN: "The RYMAN had an extraordinary year in 2010 and is poised to have an even better year in 2011 as a result of SALLY WILLIAMS' leadership and outstanding management team."
Additional winners with NASHVILLE/Country music ties included CAPITOL/NASHVILLE trio LADY ANTEBELLUM for "Best New Touring Artist," CORAN CAPSHAW for "Personal Manager of the Year" (clients include TIM McGRAW, FAITH HILL, PHISH and DAVE MATTHEWS) and JOHN HUIE of CREATIVE ARTISTS AGENCY for "Third Coast Booking Agent of the Year."
