Big Loud Records is continuing to tune a well-oiled machine that has become one of Nashville’s most innovative music business leaders, announcing a new round of advances and fresh hires in its Promotion department as the summer of 2021 heats up.

Arriving as their game-changing company keeps shaking up the industry, these moves will help drive Big Loud into a promising future – while also making them stronger and more resourceful in the here and now.

First up is renowned Big Loud leader STACY BLYTHE, who has been elevated to SVP PROMOTION from her previous VP Promotion post. Awarded the top honor for SVP-VP/National Promotion at the 2021 CRS/Country Aircheck Awards, Blythe has been integral to Big Loud Records’ head-turning success story, which has seen the label earn 11 U.S. #1s with GOLD, PLATINUM, and MULTI-PLATINUM certifications, plus more than 14 BILLION global streams to date – all in less than six years.

Continuing to maximize airplay for a next-level bill, Blythe will be joined in her step-up by ALI MATKOSKY, who rises proudly into the VP PROMOTION role from National Director Promotion. Working directly with Blythe and the Big Loud Records lineup, Matkosky’s leadership has already contributed to eight chart-toppers, and she’ll remain boots-on-the-ground in the quest for more.

Likewise, longtime promotion member TYLER WAUGH makes the climb to NATIONAL DIRECTOR PROMOTION, having spent the last few years as the Director Southeast Promotion and now drawing directly from a deep well of nationwide market expertise.

SARAH HEADLEY progresses to DIRECTOR SOUTHEAST PROMOTION from her former role as Promotion Coordinator, aiming to build on experience where she helped create a five #1 year for the label in 2020.

And proving well-suited to navigating the high-stakes world of executive management, DELANEY ROGERS shifts her duties as EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT from Big Loud Partner/CEO Seth England over to Blythe.
Meanwhile, Big Loud Records is also expanding its talented team’s bandwidth, with new hires driven to make a difference.

KELLEY BROCK, the label’s new PROMOTION COORDINATOR, was previously an on-air radio personality at WKDF – Nashville and WUSY – Chattanooga. With WUSY, she won a 2018 CMA Broadcast Award for Personality of the Year (Medium Market) with the Ken, Kelley, and Daniel show. In addition, Michigan native AUBREY WILSON joins as DATA & ANALYTICS COORDINATOR, following the departure of Giuliana Mignone to pursue her artist career. Brock can be reached at [email protected] and Wilson at [email protected].

All advances and hires take effect immediately. With every division of the visionary firm building momentum, it’s just more proof that the Big Loud brand is getting bigger – and louder – with a bold roster featuring Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen, Chris Lane, HARDY, Mason Ramsey, MacKenzie Porter, ERNEST, Ben Burgess, Ashland Craft, Larry Fleet, Sean Stemaly, Blame My Youth, and Lily Rose, plus Hailey Whitters and Madison Kozak on Songs & Daughters.
