This month’s installment of “CMA Industry InSite,” the online educational series for CMA members, is available starting today (6/15). The second episode on Artist Management can be found at www.My.CMAworld.com.
The series was developed by CMA’s Artist Relations Committee, chaired by Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn, to lay a foundation for how the various business interests within the industry function. Brooks appears in the Artist Management episode along with Kerry Hanson, President, Big Enterprises; Clint Higham, Executive Vice President, Morris Management Group; Ken Levitan, President, Vector Management; and Clarence Spalding, President, Spalding Entertainment.
Future episodes will be on topics such as Record Labels, Radio, Social Networking, Entertainment Law, and Touring. Each subsequent episode will be posted on the third Monday of the month (an exception this month for CMA Music Festival). CMA members will also be able to submit questions to the panel of experts interviewed for each episode.
“We are getting a lot of positive feedback for the series,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer Tammy Genovese. “We are hearing from our members that this is a very valuable industry awareness tool and something they are encouraging their employees and business associates to watch.”
Each segment is 8-10 minutes long and is produced by digital marketing firm Hi-Fi Fusion.
