“All of us at UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP NASHVILLE are thrilled that TOBY has chosen to stay within the UNIVERSAL family," said UMGN Chairman/CEO MIKE DUNGAN. "And family it is, in this arrangement that allows SHOW DOG NASHVILLE to remain independent, yet be fully integrated into our system and the great team of professionals that make up UMGN.”
