NASHVILLE– Coran Capshaw has signed megastar Tim McGraw to his Red Light Management artist roster. McGraw will be joining Dave Matthews Band and Phish as Capshaw’s primary focus.

“I am very impressed with the level of resources and creativity that Coran brings to the table,” says McGraw. “I have been blessed with an incredible career and look forward to breaking new ground with him.”

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with a visionary artist such as Tim,” said Coran Capshaw, founder and owner of Red Light Management. “He’s a leader who shares our entrepreneurial spirit, a natural pioneer who embraces the cutting edge in everything he does.”

Tim McGraw is one of the most prolific entertainers of his time. His multi-faceted career encompasses recordings, touring, music publishing, film, television, books, as well as branding and licensing.  Since his career began in the early 1990’s McGraw has scanned over 40 million records and dominated the charts with 30 #1 singles. McGraw has won 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards including the coveted Entertainer of the Year, 10 American Music Awards, three GRAMMY®s, three People’s Choice Awards and numerous other awards.  His enduring status as a respected performer has seen his concert tours consistently rank at #1. He and wife Faith Hill hold the record for the biggest consecutive multi-year tour in country music history with a box office gross of $142 million dollars for their “Soul2Soul Tour” outings in 2006 and 2007. McGraw has also launched an impressive acting career with 2004’s “Friday Night Lights,” 2006’s “Flicka,” followed by “The Kingdom” in 2007 and “Four Christmases” in 2008. He is currently filming a co-starring role in “The Blind Side” with Sandra Bullock.

Red Light Management was founded in 1991 by Coran Capshaw at the beginning of his 18-year role as the personal manager of Dave Matthews Band. The company has grown into one of the premier artist management companies in the industry. Sister company Starr Hill Presents promotes live music on a regional and national level, and together with its partners, Starr Hill Presents produces large-scale music festivals nationwide including Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival and the Mile High Music Festival in Denver.
