Concert promoters and festival producers AC Entertainment, known for the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, among its many projects, announced the addition of two new employees to its Nashville, Tenn., office. Erin McAnally joins the company as Nashville Marketing and Special Projects Director, and Taylor Shomaker returns to AC Entertainment as Director of Event Operations and Talent Buyer, building on his previous role with the company.

McAnally received her B.A. in English from Belmont University and went on to earn an Asia Pacific Leadership Program Fellowship from The East and West Center in Honolulu. She then returned to Nashville where she worked as a Production Coordinator at Tony Brown Enterprises from 2006 to 2009. She later went on to work freelance as Music Supervisor and Assistant to composer John Powell at Independently Thinking Music in Los Angeles. In 2012, Erin started as Executive and Event Director at Imogene and Willie and was quickly promoted to V.P. of Marketing, PR and Retail, coordinating events with companies such as GQ, Spotify and Warby Parker.

Shomaker began his seven-year career at AC Entertainment in 2007, with previous positions including Assistant to the COO, Event Operations Manager and Talent Buyer for country music bookings. He was also heavily involved in the company’s music festivals, including Bonnaroo, Forecastle Festival, Mountain Oasis, and Big Ears, as well as Mumford & Sons’ Gentleman of the Road stopover series. In his new role, Shomaker will direct the operations for many of the company’s top special events and concerts; buy talent for country music and Americana genres; and represent ACE at venues, concerts, and special events throughout Nashville and surrounding markets.

“We’re really thriving in Nashville’s high energy, creative environment. We’ve had a great year since officially establishing our Nashville office, and our opportunities continue to expand. We are happy to welcome a strong talent like Erin to the team and to have Taylor, who was with us for over seven years, return to join our Nashville team after a short hiatus.” said Ashley Capps, AC Entertainment Founder/CEO.
