May 25, 2010 at 10:43 AM (PT)
GLOTOWN/LOVE EVERYBODY artist BIG KENNY and his GLOTOWN entertainment company have partnered with SCOTT SIMAN of RPM MANAGEMENT for personal management and strategic oversight of his entertainment and humanitarian endeavors. BIG KENNY launched his “BIG KENNY’s Love Everybody Traveling Musical Medicine Show” in APRIL (NET NEWS 4/15) and is also known for his charitable endeavors like his efforts to stop mountaintop mining and his trips to HAITI to help search for earthquake survivors and to perform for US troops.
SIMAN said: “I am jazzed to be representing the talent and humanitarian interests of BIG KENNY. Just as KENNY does things differently musically, we are going to match him with a new business model and unique marketing approach for his artistry and humanitarian efforts. It’s easy for the industry to put someone like KENNY through the same types of things that have always been done but I want to build a system and a support team tailored to the way KENNY creates his music and art. And he knows how to write smash hits!”
BIG KENNY said: “I have known SCOTT since I toured with TIM McGRAW and we worked together on the single ‘Last Dollar’. His track record as an attorney, label executive and manager is unparalleled. I appreciate his perspective on the changing entertainment industry – he has proven that he is not afraid of trying new and different ways of marketing and promoting music and art. And he is a fine golfer!”
BIG KENNY has established his “Love Everybody Foundation” to further his charitable works. The foundation is affiliated with the COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF MIDDLE TENNESSEEE.
In other BIG KENNY news, he is partnering with video game ROCK BAND to bring relief and donations to NASHVILLE’s flood victims. BIG KENNY is one of the many artists joining ROCK BAND RELIEF, an organization that helps artists convert their music into playable songs for the ROCK BAND video game series. These tracks can be purchased from the ROCK BAND NETWORK online store and a portion of all proceeds will be donated to the AMERICAN RED CROSS. Any part of the sales commission the artist receives and wishes to donate to RED CROSS will be matched by ROCK BAND RELIEF.
BIG KENNY has contributed the songs “One More Time” and “Happy People” for the effort. These songs are currently undergoing the ROCK BAND conversion process and should be available to gamers in about 2 months. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from all downloads of the MP3 versions of his songs via the AMAZON links at www.RockBandRelief.org will also be donated to the RED CROSS.
