Show Dog Nashville VP/Promotion Rick Moxley has been elevated to Senior VP/Promotion, and the company has added accomplished promotion veteran Teddi Bonadies as VP/Promotion. A 12-year company veteran, Moxley continues to report to label founder/owner Toby Keith. Bonadies reports to Moxley.
Moxley’s career began in sports media with franchises including the Golden State Warriors and Oakland A’s. Transitioning to the music business with Warner Bros. Records, he went on to Giant Records, Rising Tide, and BNA. Along the way he championed hits and led campaigns for artists including Hank Williams, Jr., Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Randy Travis, Dwight Yoakam, Travis Tritt, Faith Hill, Clay Walker, Kenny Chesney, and Lonestar. He joined Show Dog Nashville in 2008, and leads promotion efforts for the roster featuring Clay Walker, Krystal Keith, Waterloo Revival and Founder/Owner, Toby Keith.
“Show Dog Nashville is entering an exciting new phase with Teddi’s hire. Our promotion department will kick ass,” says Keith. “And we just signed the talented, chart-topping Clay Walker. Look out 2021.”
“I want to thank Toby for this next opportunity,” Moxley says. “Twelve-plus years with Show Dog, a label owned and operated by a country superstar and Hall of Fame songwriter, has truly been a highlight of my career. We are the Wild, Wild West and I’m looking forward to another year of great country music.”
Bonadies has worked 87 No. 1 country records in her career and has been instrumental in breaking artists including Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Eli Young Band, Granger Smith, and Runaway June. Her prior stops include a substantially successful stay at Arista Records/Nashville. She also held positions at CBS Records, Universal South, and Wheelhouse Records.
“A winner at every stop in her career, Teddi’s unmatched tenacity and thorough knowledge of the music business are traits I’ve admired for years,” Moxley says. “Like me, she cut her teeth during a time of unrivaled growth for country, and she’s been on the front lines of developing many now legendary acts. We share a belief in the importance of teamwork and trust, and her addition is a major asset as we look toward even greater success in 2021.”
“Joining Show Dog Nashville to work with the iconic Toby Keith, a stellar roster, and Rick Moxley is an honor for which I’m deeply grateful,” Bonadies says. “I’ve known and been peers with Mox for years and, even more, appreciate him as a quality human being. Finally having the opportunity to work together is amazing; I can’t wait to get started!”
The moves come as Show Dog Nashville completes its 15th year. 2021 looks to be a promising year for the company, with new music coming from Clay Walker and Krystal Keith, with her father, Toby Keith.
