Jeff Tanner is joining Big Loud in the newly-created role of VP/Business Affairs. Tanner will oversee business and legal affairs for Big Loud Records and Publishing, and will report directly to Big Loud Records and Publishing COO Austen Adams, effective immediately.
The move sees Tanner returning to Nashville from Dallas. He previously spent a decade in Nashville with stops at Narada/EMI and Sony Music Nashville as Associate Director, Legal & Business Affairs. Coming full circle, he even sang background vocals on Jake Owen’s No. 1 smash “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” along with his fellow country radio peers.
“We are thrilled to have Jeff join our Big Loud family,” said Adams. “He is an extremely well-respected member of the music business community and comes with ample record label executive experience. But more importantly, he’s a great guy.”
“Big Loud is a progressive, creative, and forward-thinking company that consistently puts the artist first,” said Tanner. “I’m thrilled to be joining the Big Loud family at such an exciting time and look forward to doing my part to further its success.”
