UMG Nashville president Cindy Mabe will be honored during the upcoming eleventh annual Louise Scruggs Memorial Forum, set for Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater.
At Arista and RCA Records, Mabe worked closely with Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, and Carrie Underwood. She moved to Capitol Records to head the marketing department, rose to Sr. VP at the label, and helped oversee the merger of Capitol/EMI with Universal Music Group in 2012. Two years later, she became president of UMG Nashville.
Among the projects that Mabe has overseen are Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights, Eric Church’s Mr. Misunderstood, Hillary Scott’s Love Remains, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller, and George Strait’s Cold Beer Conversation. Her embrace of new music distribution channels through streaming services and social media has paid off, most notably for artist Sam Hunt.
This program is free and open to the public. The event, held in partnership with Gibson Foundation, will be live streamed at countrymusichalloffame.org/streaming.
Founded in 2002 as the philanthropic division of Gibson Brands, the Gibson Foundation is committed to making the world a better place for children worldwide through its own initiatives and by its support of other non-profit organizations that advance music and the arts, health and welfare, education, and environmental causes.
