Big Sky Media has appointed Clif Doyal as COO of its newly acquired umbrella of companies, including Way Out West Records and artist service affiliates Clif Doyal Agency, CDA Promotions-Nashville and Parrot Picks Publishing Group.

Way out West Records was co-founded in 2008 by Doyal, Tim Russell and flagship artist Shawna Russell.

“This is a very exciting time in today’s ever-evolving industry,” says Doyal. “It has been a longtime goal of mine to have this group of companies under one roof. With our business model we are able to form joint ventures and strategic partnerships with outside companies.”

New hirings at the Clif Doyal Agency include booking agent Phillip Hager and management assistant Justin Woods. The agency opened in 1984 in Oklahoma City, Okla., before relocating to Nashville in 1991. The Clif Doyal Agency currently manages Russell and LiveWire with booking and event management divisions.

Publicity and marketing company CDA Promotions-Nashville currently handles PR for Way Out West Records, the Summer OilPatch Festival, Russell, and LiveWire (in association with so much MOORE media).

Parrot Picks Publishing Group will be re-launched with announcements of hiring and writer developments in the coming weeks.
