Lyric Street Promotion Staff Rolls On
April 16, 2010 at 7:23 AM (PT)
As a follow-up to the news yesterday on the changes at LYRIC STREET RECORDS/NASHVILLE (NET NEWS 4/14), VP/National Promotion KEVIN HERRING, in a conversation with ALL ACCESS, told us that a lot of things remain exactly the same. "Strangely, it is business as usual for our promo staff,” said HERRING.
“We continue to work the records by our artists like KEVIN FOWLER and BUCKY COVINGTON, ... and we have the intention to drive the current RASCAL FLATTS single to #1,” he added.
HERRING explained that while some people have left, including Pres. RANDY GOODMAN and SVP/A&R DOUG HOWARD, that he has a full promo team in place to work his records under the umbrella of the DISNEY MUSIC GROUP.
“Obviously there’s some stuff still to be determined, “said KEVIN. “Look at it like this -- the DISNEY MUSIC GROUP is the ‘mothership’ ... and the promo staff has been pulled into that mother ship. We are dedicated and committed to seeing our projects through.”

LYRIC STREET RECORDS/NASHVILLE trio RASCAL FLATTS have also released a statement this week. They said: "Although we are saddened for the people at LYRIC STREET whom we have worked so closely with over the last 10 years, we are still very much excited about the new album we are currently making and bringing that new music to our fans."
