Randy
Goodman

Chairman / CEO

The fellow who has guided Sony’s Nashville labels since 2015 saw his company gain more than two points in market share this year, thanks in part to established stars Luke Combs, who scored his record-extending 12th and 13th No. 1 country airplay hits, and 2022 ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert, whose “Palo­mino” notched the biggest first week by a country act in 2022 when it arrived in April. Kane Brown had the unique distinction of being the first male country artist to perform at MTV’s Video Music Awards, with his album “Different Man” drawing a career-best 10 million streams in its first week and his collaboration “Famous Friends” helping to spark a career resurgence for label mate Chris Young. Corey Kent and Nate Smith are among the acts Goodman’s crew are prepping for stardom.
