Thirty Tigers expands on its successful development of country artists including Josh Abbott Band, Chase Rice, Old Dominion, and Love and Theft, with the acquiring of management firm Unrest Music Group. Unrest’s principal Gino Genaro joins Thirty Tigers in the newly formed role of VP, Country Music Management.

Thirty Tigers announced a full-time radio promotion team lead by country radio promotion veteran Pamela J. Newman earlier in 2015.

A graduate of the University of San Diego, Genaro started Unrest Music Group directly out of college after playing an integral part assisting the launch of and Compadre Records. In February, Unrest Music Group Management client Aaron Watson debuted on the Billboard Country Chart at No. 1 with his latest studio album The Underdog, distributed through Thirty Tigers.

Genaro brings long-standing client Watson and new artist Cameran Nelson to the Thirty Tigers artist management roster.

“I could not be more thrilled to be joining the Thirty Tigers family,” says Genaro. “Their philosophy, their staff, their resources are exceptional. As the business continues to have its challenges going forward, I am full of optimism and confidence that we will all share in many, many victories together and I am excited to dig in and get to work.”

“I’ve known and worked with Gino for twelve years and in that time, his smarts, drive and ethics have been an inspiration to me,” says Thirty Tigers President David Macias. “As Thirty Tigers makes our move into being a full-service provider in the commercial country business, I could not think of a person I’d trust more to take the reins of what will become an important part of our business.”

Genaro has relocated his operation to Thirty Tigers’ main office in Nashville, Tennessee. Genaro may be contacted at [email protected] and as of Sept. 1 at 615-664-1167.
