KEVIN NEAL, President of BUDDY LEE ATTRACTIONS (BLA), has announced the acquisition of longtime independent agency METRO TALENT GROUP (MTG). MTG founder and owner CASS SCRIPPS will join the BLA agency for artist representation.
NEAL said: “Our company is very excited about CASS and his roster coming on board at BLA. CASS is one of the most respected agents in the world, and for seventeen years built a tremendously successful independent agency in ATLANTA. His knowledge of the business as well as the relationships that he has developed throughout the years will continue to keep BLA on the growth pattern that we set a year ago. I have been a long time fan of CASS and the way he has been instrumental in the development of the careers of his artists. When given the opportunity to be able to make CASS a part of our team we didn’t hesitate.”
SCRIPPS added: “I have weighed several options during my 20-plus year career and after working with KEVIN and members of the BLA team, it was clear that BLA had something special to offer. The opportunity to work in a team environment and with all of the exciting changes at BLA I felt it was too good of an opportunity for me and my clients to pass on. My artists, managers, and I are thrilled to join the BLA team and I am excited to begin a new chapter in my career.”
SCRIPPS brings artists COREY SMITH, DAVID RYAN HARRIS, DRIVIN N’ CRYIN, EDWIN McCAIN, and KEVN KINNEY to the BLA roster. SCRIPPS can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or (615) 244-4336. For full client roster, visit www.buddyleeattractions.com.
