IEBA Honors Judy Seale
International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA) has recognized Judy Seale with the organization’s International Buyer of the Year honor, during its 45th annual conference in Nashville.
Seale is the leading lady behind Judy Seale International, which coordinates for numerous festivals in Europe and Asia. Since 1987, Judy Seale has produced more than 400 international tours and festivals, featuring artists from the genres of country, rock, and classic rock.
“It’s very humbling to be recognized by such a prestigious organization as IEBA,” remarked an appreciative Seale during her acceptance speech.
“My thanks go to all the agents, managers, publicists, and entertainers who have supported me throughout the years. Special thanks to The Bellamy Brothers who have introduced me to the phenomenon of performing before sold out audiences of country music fans in strange places like The Faroe Islands, New Caledonia, India, Sri Lanka, Qatar, and next year Iceland. I also want to recognize someone who is here with us in spirit tonight – Jeff Walker. He was one of my biggest supporters and a dear friend. Last of all, thanks to everyone who has supported my efforts to secure quality celebrity entertainment for our troops deployed overseas in harm’s way,” Seale continued.
