Veteran agent Kevin Neal has exited his post as President of Buddy Lee Attractions, where he was the responsible agent for Jason Aldean and many more. BLA’s roster is also home to Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford, Parmalee, John King, Jason Michael Carroll, LoCash Cowboys, and others.

“I am proud of the work we did at BLA during my tenure as President,” Neal told MusicRow. “We built the company to new prominence, especially working with Jason Aldean and Florida Georgia Line and so many more. And we won the 2014 Pollstar Award for Independent Booking Agency of the Year. Now it is time for me to move on. I wish everybody at BLA the best. There will be an announcement coming shortly.”

Neal took over the role of President in 2009 following the departure of Tony Conway. At the time, Neal had been with the agency for 20 years. 

His career includes winning IEBA Talent Agent of the Year in 2006, 2008 and 2010; and NATD Agent of the Year in 2007. He was also a 2013 NATD Honors Award Recipient.

Neal was born in Shreveport, La., and raised in the music business as son of agent/manager Bob Neal. He joined the Neal Agency in 1981 and worked with his father, before eventually settling at Buddy Lee Attractions.
