Faith Hill has joined Coran Capshaw’s Red Light Management roster, with the company’s New York office handling the superstar’s career. Red Light President Will Botwin will join Capshaw in managing Hill.
Hill and longtime manager Gary Borman parted ways last year. Similarly, Hill’s superstar husband, Tim McGraw also inked with Red Light early in 2009 after dissolving his long-term association with Scott Siman’s rpm Management.
Hill says, “[Red Light] is an extremely talented and dedicated group of people who bring the same passion to their work that I bring to my music.” The company’s resources include in-house marketing, promotion, licensing, touring, and new media.
Hill ended the decade with the distinction of being the only artist, in any musical genre, to have two of the Top 10 most played songs of the decade (according to Nielsen BDS): “Breathe” and “The Way You Love Me.” The five-time Grammy Award winner is working on her seventh studio album.
“I’m honored that Faith has given us the opportunity to open new doors in her very unique and diverse career,” said Capshaw, adding, “She is a one-of-a-kind artist, superbly talented, genuine, forward-thinking and with a strong sense of integrity.”
Capshaw founded Red Light Management in 1991 at the beginning of his 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, produces large-scale music festivals nationwide including Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Capshaw also started the fully independent ATO Records Group.
Red Light-affilliated mangers in Nashville include Greg Hill (Phil Vassar, Rodney Atkins, The Lost Trailers, Heidi Newfield, Jason Michael Carroll, Third Day) and Kerri Edwards, manager for Luke Bryan.
