Jesse Keith Whitley has signed with booking agency Buddy Lee Attractions for worldwide representation. Whitley has also teamed with Tony Conway of Ontourage Management.

Whitley’s joining BLA marks a family tradition of sorts. BLA represented both Whitley’s grandfather, Country Music Hall of Famer George Morgan, and mother, country entertainer Lorrie Morgan.

“I could not be more thrilled to be with Buddy Lee Attractions Inc. Our family history runs deep with this wonderful team. I am a 3rd generation artist to go through BLA, so to have Joe Lee and Donna Lee involved is such an honor,” Whitley said.

Warner/Chappell Production Music, the production music arm of Warner Music Group, has had a piece nominated for the PromaxBDA Local Awards’ “Use Of Original Music in a Promo” category. The nominated piece, “Listen to Larry,” was created in conjunction with KTVT-TV (CBS 11 – Dallas/Ft. Worth) to promote the accuracy and dependability of their Chief Meteorologist, Larry Mowry.

Randy Wachtler, Warner/Chappell Production Music President & CE0 stated, “I’m thrilled that this collaboration with KTVT-TV is nominated for a Promax Local Award, and proud to have been a part of a successful and popular campaign!”

Mark Agent, Warner/Chappell Production Music’s Director of Licensing for Local Television added, “KTVT wanted something powerful, something to get their message across about their award-winning weather forecast. The Texas style of music really helped us bring out the pride that the viewers have in their state.”

The PromaxBDA Local Awards celebrate and honor the best in local media, marketing and design, driving excellence, creativity and innovation from the local market. The Awards will be held on June 23 in Las Vegas as part of the PromaxBDA Station Summit.
