Sony Music Nashville (SMN) has appointed Meg Kehoe as Head of Media. She will report to Jennifer Way (Senior Vice President, Marketing), relocate to Nashville, and start with the company on July 5.
The news follows the announcement that Allen Brown, Sr. VP of Media and Corporate Communications at Sony Music Nashville, would be retiring.
In this role, Kehoe will be responsible for the label group’s media team as well as overseeing the press strategy for both SMN and its entire artist roster. In addition to designing and implementing media campaigns and strategies for Sony Music Nashville artists, she will be identifying and pursuing new opportunities and partnerships for the label that will help amplify the artists’ narrative, maximize audience growth and drive consumption.
“Meg is a dynamic leader and one of the most diligent media executives I’ve ever know,” Way shares. “She is highly respected and trusted by her artists, managers, industry colleagues and partners alike. I am confident that her passion for country music combined with her diverse experience and knowledge across multiple genres will serve our team and artists well, and I’m thrilled to welcome her to the Sony Nashville Family!”
“I’ve been a fan of country music for as long as I can remember,” Kehoe adds. “I’m excited to further expand the profiles and reach of the company’s artist roster and am grateful to Sony Music for supporting my career growth with this new role as part of the team in Nashville.”
Most recently, Kehoe held senior media relations roles at RCA Records for 14 years where she developed and implemented the media campaigns for artists including P!NK, Pentatonix, Kelly Clarkson, Ray LaMontagne, Jimmy Eat World, Fousheé and most recently breakout star Tate McRae. She was also an integral member on the campaigns for Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, G-Eazy, Cam, Backstreet Boys, Elle King, Kane Brown, Tenille Townes and so many others.
She was one of the leading architects for the label’s external media storytelling as well as handled the strategy for RCA’s Grammy submissions, which led to 52 nominations this year alone, as well as Clio Awards, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, and more.
Kehoe began in the music industry as an intern for Jive Records and graduated from Fordham University in 2008.
