After nearly seven months after Pete Fisher resigned as Head of the Academy of Country Music, his successor has been named.  Damon Whiteside will leave his position as chief marketing officer of Nashville-based Country Music Association to take the top job at the L.A.- based ACM.

He will assume his position as CEO on January 6, assuming the position from RAC Clark, who was serving as executive interim director. Clark has produced the organization's annual prime-time awards show since 1999.

Whiteside is only the third CEO the Academy of Country has had it its 55 years.

Damon joining the ACM is exactly what the Academy needs right now,” Clark said in a statement. “I’ve been part of the ACM Awards since 1979, and I can’t wait to pass along everything I can to Damon from my experience as an ACM board member, interim executive director and executive producer of the telecast.”

Whiteside has 23 years in the music industry. His experience includes time at the Walt Disney Company where he worked in brand partnerships and retail strategies with their music labels and TV franchises. He then created the Nomad Entertainment Group in Hollywood.  He developed marketing and digital campaigns and brand strategy and partnerships for entertainment clients. He was with CMA for six years starting as VP of marketing and strategic partnerships before becoming chief market officer. 

“I am extremely proud of the monumental accomplishments that our dedicated team at CMA has been able to achieve these last six years, thanks to the support and guidance of the CMA board and Sarah Trahern,Whiteside said. “It has been an honor to help shape the successes of this rich genre, and to be part of a respected organization like CMA and its mission to grow country music globally while shaping positive perceptions about the industry and its artists. … I am honored and humbled to now be given the responsibility to shape the future of the Academy.”

The Country Radio Broadcasters have released details surrounding 3 highly anticipated agenda items that will take place during CRS 2020 set for February 19-21 at Omni Nashville. The additions are:

Do the Metrics Prove the Music?

Moderator Katie Dean (MCA Nashville SVP of Promotion) will be joined by Stone Door Media Lab’s Jeff Green, BMLG Records’ SVP of Promotion Matthew Hargis, and Hubbard Radio’s WUBE Cincinnati, OH PD Grover Collins as they revisit the Top 5, statistically proven, data metrics that truly matter in predicting a radio hit for 2020. This panel will explore the trends and analytics of a three-year Country Radio research project. Case studies of the Top songs of the past three years and current Country Radio Chart singles will be presented and discussed to see where the metrics do and do not align, and how you can apply that data in your day-to-day programming and label strategy.

Thursday, February 20, 10 a.m.: CRS Research Presentation

One of the hallmarks of CRS is the annual research presentation, specifically designed and commissioned for CRS attendees. The essence of the 2020 project is a deep dive into what makes Country listeners tick, and the perspective of the Country radio programmer. Evaluating the perceptions of both listeners and programmers is unique in the history of CRS research projects. This study will give Country radio decision-makers the opportunity to align perceptions with the audiences we serve, to see the world as our audience does, and to challenge ourselves, asking: are we IN TUNE?

Friday, February 21, 9 a.m.: Miles Adcox: Say Yes To Stress?!?
Miles Adcox, owner of Onsite, keynoted one of CRS 2018’s most attended, and highest-scoring sessions. Adcox returns to CRS, with a presentation covering an issue every attendee is dealing with: STRESS! Adcox will cover topics on accessibility, setting boundaries, recognizing and coping with stressful situations, advocating self-care, prioritizing, and the art of saying no.

Country Radio Seminar is the premier educational and networking event for Country radio and music industry professionals, offering attendees access to panels, networking, speakers, research and intimiate performances from some of today's biggest artists and emerging artists.
