Belmont University To Honor Peebles and IEBA

Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business will honor the International Entertainment Buyers Association and one of its founders Harry “Hap” Peebles with the 2011 Robert E. Mulloy Award of Excellence. The presentation will take place at the school’s Best of the Best showcase 7 pm, March 26 at Belmont’s Curb Event Center.

Established in memory of program founder Bob Mulloy, the annual Award of Excellence recognizes an individual or organization that has achieved a level of excellence in the music business and entertainment industries with notable service to Belmont University and the Nashville community. Previous recipients include Donna Hilley and Vince Gill.

Peebles served the country industry over 60 years, working with Barbara Mandrell when she was only 11 years old. He is a founder of IEBA, originally known as the International Country Music Buyers Association, which began in 1970 as a non-profit trade organization for talent buyers, promoters, agents, managers and artists. IEBA has established four endowed scholarships for Belmont students in honor of Peebles, Don Romeo, J.P. Williams, and George Moffett. Collectively the endowments represent over $300,000 in investments.
