Music industry executive Kelli Haywood has returned to Starstruck Management Group, in the role of Manager and Vice President, Artist Development, where she reunites with Starstruck Management Group’s Narvel Blackstock and Brandon Blackstock.
She also will focus on signing and cultivating new talent at the music entertainment agency.
Haywood, who formerly served as VP, Brand Management at Warner Music Nashville, returns to Starstruck in a full-time role after founding her own artist management agency, KCH Entertainment, a year ago. She continued to serve as a consultant to the Blackstocks. Before that she served a two-year stint as Starstruck’s Vice President of Marketing and Partnerships.
“Brandon and I have worked with Kelli for several years when she was in charge of marketing for Blake Shelton at Warner Bros. Records,” Narvel Blackstock said. “We have always been extremely impressed with Kelli’s intelligence and talent whether working with her at the label or later when she brought many corporate partners for Starstruck artists. She has shown a broad understanding of what it takes for an artist to achieve their dreams and we could not be more happy to have her joining us at Starstruck.”
“I have worked with Narvel and Brandon for many years and believe that they are the best in the business,” Haywood said. “We have a unique opportunity to grow our roster and continue to build on the great successes we have had. I look forward to being a part of this great team.”
