JASON OWEN, 39
President/CEO, Sandbox Entertainment
Last Year's Rank: —
Owen has had a winning streak managing women in country: Shania Twain grossed $65 million with the year's ninth-biggest tour, Kacey Musgraves sold out Royal Albert Hall in London, and Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" is a triple Grammy nominee. Owen made news for not taking the Sony Nashville presidency but says the decision helped his move into TV. He's an executive producer with new client Faith Hill on an upcoming daytime show.
