BE Music & Entertainment has announced the addition of former Rocketown Records President Don Donahue as the company’s vice president of live events and program development.
A 20-year veteran of the Nashville music industry, Donahue launched the boutique artist label Rocketown Records in 1996, selling more than 6 million albums while working with a roster that included artists Chris Rice, Ginny Owens, Shaun Groves and Wayne Kirkpatrick, among others. Previously, he served as VP/artist development at Intero Alliance, where he co-executive produced the global Avon Voices campaign.
“This is a bit of a ‘full circle’ moment for me in my career, as [BE Music & Entertainment President] Michael Blanton was the first person to hire me in the industry more than 20 years ago,” Donahue said in a release. “It feels like a wonderful homecoming.”
With offices located in Dallas and Nashville, BE Music & Entertainment provides client services and support in management, production and publishing in all music genres. The agency operates as a subsidiary of Dallas-based parent company London Broadcasting.
