Big Loud Records has promoted Stacy Blythe to the role of Vice President of Promotion.
Effective immediately, Blythe will report directly to label President Clay Hunnicutt, and can be reached via email at [email protected].
Blythe is a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University with over a decade of radio-promotion experience – including stops at Category 5 Records, 1720 Entertainment, Stoney Creek Records and Republic Nashville – and in her previous role as Big Loud Records’ National Director of Promotion, oversaw influential campaigns for Jake Owen, Chris Lane, Morgan Wallen, Jillian Jacqueline and Mason Ramsey.
“Since Big Loud Records started almost three years ago, Stacy has been an integral part of the Big Loud family and has shown us – and the entire industry – that she is a leader who can deliver,” Hunnicutt says. “We would not be where we are today without her, and we look forward to breaking more records as we grow. There were people that told her she could not do this. Respectfully, we would say, ‘You were wrong and she has proven it!’”
Blythe adds, “We truly have a family here at Big Loud and I’m so blessed to be a part of it. I am proud of what this team has accomplished in the first 2 and a half years and am honored to take on a bigger role moving forward. I am beyond grateful to Clay, Seth, Chief, Craig and Joey for their continued confidence in me.”
Blythe has signed a multi-year deal as Big Loud Records’ newest VP, meaning the independent country label is now on the hunt for a new National Director of Promotion. Resumes/portfolios can be submitted at [email protected].
Big Loud Records was founded as a partnership between Craig Wiseman, Seth England, Kevin “Chief” Zaruk and Joey Moi, four industry veterans with a vision to bring artist development, management, production, and promotion under one roof. Led by Hunnicutt, the label scored its first win with breakout country star Lane and his debut single, “Fix,” which became a Gold-certified No. 1 success in 2015. The hit marked an unlikely feat for Big Loud Records – scoring their first chart topper with the label’s very first release.
Since then the label has gone on to expand its roster with the addition of country superstar Owen (“I Was Jack (And You Were Diane)”), while scoring more boundary-pushing hits with Lane (“For Her,” “Take Back Home Girl” featuring Tori Kelly) and rising singer-songwriter Wallen (“Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line). The Big Loud lineup also includes edgy firebrand Jacqueline (“Reasons”) and fresh-faced viral superstar Ramsey (“Famous”).
