Doc McGhee and Scott McGhee of McGhee Entertainment, Inc. have announced the windup of their 25-year business partnership.
With offices located in Los Angeles and Nashville, the 40-year-old McGhee Entertainment will remain “business as usual.” Doc McGhee will continue to oversee the McGhee roster of rock acts and corresponding live events and tours, as well as direct time and attention to film and television development/production ventures. A Doc McGhee autobiography is also in the works; during his career McGhee has worked with artists including Kiss, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, and Hootie & The Blowfish.
Scott McGhee has launched his new artist management company, 1˚ Entertainment Music & Management Group. The company will also offer integrated brand development, digital and social media strategies, and content creation for alternative distribution. These synchronized services will be incorporated into every artist initiative.
McGhee Entertainment, Inc. (Nashville) and 1˚ Entertainment Music & Management Group offices will continue residency at 21 Music Square West in Nashville.
“We were a good team; our skill sets complemented one another,” said Doc McGhee. “Together, we led the way to expand international touring opportunities and lent assistance to piece the puzzle to celebrate Darius Rucker’s success in becoming the only solo artist with a No. 1 single in another format. I’m proud of the work we’ve done. Our separation is spawned merely by personal and professional objectives, maturity and growth.”
“Doc had established the management company as a frontrunner in the music industry. He had solidified a sound business model and was managing two of the biggest bands in the world…with great success…when I came in,” Scott McGhee added. “Our varied perspectives in marketing, branding, artist development and touring, combined with our commitment to our artists, is what made McGhee Entertainment work and we worked well together.”
“Our objective is to find new and innovative opportunities for our artists over the course of his or her entire career,” Scott McGhee says of his new 1˚ Entertainment Music & Management Group. “We don’t want to just provide a service; we will offer new business strategies tailored to suit each one of our clients. The goal is to canvas the artists’ careers through development in the early days to maintaining relevance, viability and longevity for years to come. Our team will incorporate our mutual experience into a business strategy that is in keeping with the ever-changing environment.”
