7/15/19

Universal Music Group Nashville has upped Katie Dean to SVP Promotion for MCA Records Nashville today (7/15). Prior to her near 15 years with UMG Nashville, Dean held positions with AristoMedia, CMA, Lyric Street Records and MediaBase.

In 2015, Dean was named the head MCA Nashville’s promotion team, leading them to back-to-back hits for Jordan Davis, a Top 20 single for George Strait, as well as five #1s for Sam Hunt. Other artists on the roster include Kassi Ashton, Clare Dunn, Vince Gill, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves and Josh Turner.

“I am truly excited for this promotion for Katie,” says Royce Risser, EVP Promotion. “Katie is not only one of the best promotion people in Nashville, she’s also one of the best people I know, period. I’m so proud of the leader she has become since taking the helm of the MCA team.” Dean adds, “The MCA roster of the 90s is why I fell in love with country music, it’s an honor and privilege to work with this team to maintain the MCA legacy while we break the next generation of superstars.”
