SMN UPS LAUREN THOMAS TO SVP OF PROMOTION
6/18/24

Sony Music Nashville has promoted LaurenLTThomas to SVP of promotion.

Previously VP of Columbia promo, Thomas will now oversee both RCA and Columbia imprints, reporting to EVP of promotion Steve Hodges.

“For the past nine years I have watched LT grow and develop into a strong team leader and industry power player,” said Hodges. “I’m very proud to see her rise with this well-deserved promotion to Senior Vice President as she continues to step up and help the overall Sony national representation while continuing to lead the Columbia team.”

Since joining SMN in 2009, Thomas has scored nearly 80 #1 records. Over the past two years, she led Columbia Nashville’s promo efforts with an all-female staff, achieving #1s with Old Dominion, Megan Moroney, Mitchell Tenpenny and multiple chart-toppers from Luke Combs. Most recently, Thomas and team landed Combs his 18th consecutive #1.

Thomas also contributed to SMN's success with Nate Smith, Corey Kent and Moroney hitting #1 on the country charts within five months. Prior to SMN, Thomas spent five years at KMLE-FM in Phoenix.
