Clint Wiley and Julie Sturdivant have joined CAA’s music touring department. Both will be based in the agency’s Nashville office.
Music agent Wiley started his career at Third Coast Artists Agency, and spent time at APA, Paradigm and Artisan Agency before joining CAA. His touring roster includes The Mavericks, Raul Malo, Asleep At The Wheel, Ray Benson, and McKinley James.
“Clint has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the live music business,” shares CAA Co-Head of Nashville Music, Darin Murphy. “His skills, experience and taste—specifically in the world of country music—will provide further fuel to our exceptional Nashville team, and to our Music Touring colleagues and clients globally.”
Sturdivant joins CAA from digital marketing agency Marbaloo Marketing, with her prior career stops including time at KOST 103.5 and Universal Music Group’s Interscope Records. As a Music Brand Partnerships Executive at CAA, Sturdivant will help lead brand partnership efforts for the agency’s Nashville roster of artists, including Tim McGraw, Zac Brown Band, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, and Maren Morris, among others.
“Julie is a creative and highly accomplished industry veteran with tremendous experience working with country music legends, as well as emerging artists,” says CAA’s Head of Music Brand Partnerships, Tom Worcester. “We are excited to add her unique talent to our outstanding brand partnerships group, who work daily to connect our artists with innovative and meaningful opportunities.”
In addition to Wiley and Sturdivant’s hirings, CAA has also announced a wide variety of artist-brand partnerships, having closed more than 80 deals and more than $10 million in guarantees for the agency’s country roster since March 2021. Noteworthy partnerships include Hunter Hayes and Smirnoff, Carly Pearce and Northwestern Mutual, Brett Eldredge and Facebook Audio Rooms, Keith Urban and JBL/Harman, and Maddie & Tae and Hot Tools, among others.
