SWEET TALK PUBLICITY – public relations home to superstar clients like Florida Georgia Line and Kelsea Ballerini and one of the fastest-growing independent firms in the industry – is proud to announce the hiring of two new team members, COURTNEY BEEBE and JODI DAWES.

Beebe – formerly of the Country Music Association – is the firm’s newest Publicist, while Dawes – previously of Webster Public Relations – joins as Junior Publicist. Both will take their posts immediately to begin serving an all-star roster and can be reached here: cbeebe@sweettalkpr.com / jdawes@sweettalkpr.com.

“From the minute I met Courtney and Jodi, I knew there was something special about each of them,” shares Sweet Talk president Jensen Sussman. “They both exude passion for public relations, Country music and building an artist’s career while their unique backgrounds and experiences bring a fresh energy to the team and our client roster. I’m absolutely thrilled to have them on board!”

Beebe, who graduated with a B.A. from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at University of North Carolina, moved to Nashville in 2012 and began working as a Content Marketing Specialist at Lotos Nile. In 2013, she joined the CMA team as Communications Assistant before rising to Communications Manager and serving as Managing Editor of CMA Close Up magazine.

Dawes, a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University with a B.A. in Public Relations, began her career as an intern for both WLXX radio and WLEX-TV in Lexington, KY, and also worked in corporate communications for Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex in New York City. At Webster PR, Dawes held the role of Publicity Manager, handling day-to-day activities for Mark Chesnutt, Collin Raye, John Michael Montgomery, and more.
