ndustry Veteran Chris Stacey Tapped to Spearhead Resurgence as General Manager

Nashville-based Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta and New York-headquartered Republic Records CEO Monte Lipman announced today a joint venture to revive the iconic, multi-genre Dot Records label. Borchetta and Lipman’s previously created joint venture, Republic Nashville, was founded in 2009 and remains under the BMLG umbrella in Nashville. Similarly, Dot Records will be located on Music Row and will utilize the combined resources of Big Machine and Republic Records.

Industry veteran Chris Stacey has been tapped to spearhead Dot Records as General Manager. Stacey most recently served as Senior Vice President and Head of Promotion at Warner Music Nashville. He has a 20-year career working with acts across various genres such as Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Joss Stone, Shania Twain, Blake Shelton, Hunter Hayes and Willie Nelson.

While no artists have been announced to the Dot Records’ roster, the label is carefully — and aggressively — looking for talent around the globe.
