Black River Entertainment’s VP of Publishing Dave Pacula has announced the hiring of publishing veteran Eric Hurt as Sr. Director of Creative.

“We are excited to welcome Eric Hurt to the Black River family!” says Pacula. “He is a perfect fit with our creative team and his extensive and diverse experience in multiple genres will be a great asset to our songwriters.”

Nearing 20 years in the music industry, Hurt has witnessed the ever-changing Nashville music scene first hand.

“It’s becoming a very versatile town where multiple genres of music are working together and pushing each other creatively, which is making it important for publishers to have a roster that reflects that evolution so that they are ahead of the curve.”

Hurt continued, “Black River’s roster achieves just that. I am thrilled to now be a part of Black River where all of our artists, writers and producers work hard to push musical boundaries and strive for something unique and authentic. I’m very much looking forward to helping our roster grow and finding new opportunities both within and outside of Nashville.”

Prior to joining Black River, Hurt spent time at Zavitson Music Group, Universal Music Publishing / Brentwood-Benson, Still Working Music and ForeFront Records. Most recently, Hurt served as Sr. Director of Creative at Spirit Music Group.
