Barnabee says, “I am so proud of what Hannah has accomplished in the time she has been here at Sony Nashville. She has really immersed herself in the music and the artists and brought in a fresh perspective to the projects she has been working on. Hannah will lead a strong team of marketing managers who have been instrumental in the marketing plans for the artists over the past several years. Together I believe they will create new and exciting ways to engage the fans and bring our artists to new heights.”
