Big Machine announces it has added Erin D.D. Burr to its publicity department as PR Account Manager. Burr’s primary focus will be the day-to-day facilitation of publicity initiatives for the Republic Nashville label roster, which includes The Band Perry, Eli Young Band, Jaron And The Long Road To Love, Sunny Sweeney and SHEL.
“I am ecstatic to be a part of this creative and passionate team that is defying challenges in our industry and making history,” says Burr. “I look forward to the journey and most importantly… the music our artists are making!”
Burr recently completed a three year stint as publicist for the Colgate Country Showdown, followed by two years as the Communications Director for the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI).
“Erin’s previous work with aspiring artists, plus her national media and promotional experience, makes her a natural fit for the Big Machine Label Group as we continue to embark upon exciting new endeavors,” says Natalie Kilgore, BMLG Head of Publicity. “She will play an integral role in our artists’ day-to-day lives as well as serve as an important conduit between our three labels.”
Jimmy Harnen, President of Republic Nashville welcomed Burr saying, “Her ‘refuse to lose’ attitude make her the perfect addition to the Republic Nashville and Big Machine Label Group team.”
