Dot Records has promoted Kris Lamb from Director National Promotion to VP Promotion.
Lamb and his radio promotion team recently took breakthrough duo Maddie & Tae’s “Girl in a Country Song” to No. 1. They will celebrate the chart-topper and gold certified single this afternoon at a No. 1 party in Nashville.
Dot is also home to newcomers Drake White and Craig Wayne Boyd, who will be gearing up in 2015.
“Kris always steps up to the plate with incredible passion, creativity, energy and execution,” said President and CEO of BMLG Scott Borchetta. “It’s no surprise to me that his very first single as a National Director went straight to No. 1. He is now properly announced as one of the new young stars in the promotion world and is awarded with VP stripes.”
Added Lamb, “I’m honored and beyond grateful to extend my tenure with the mighty BMLG and Dot Records. Scotty B. and Chris Stacey have provided the forum to continue Dot’s pursuit of strategically differentiating our promotion efforts through innovative partnerships with a fresh perspective. Together, with our exceptional staff of promotion executives, Dot will continue to super-serve our incredible roster of artists and our friends and partners at Country radio.”
Lamb’s career also includes time as Big Machine Records Sr. Dir. West Coast Promotion. He has been integral in the careers of Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, Danielle Bradbery and The Cadillac Three over the last four years. Lamb will remain based at BMLG’s Nashville headquarters.
