Triple 8 Management has acquired management, marketing and label entity Good Time Inc.

The CEO/Founder of the Nashville-based Good Time, Paul Steele, will join George Couri, Bruce Kalmick and Triple 8's team, and bring seven of his staffers with him.

Triple 8, which earlier this year partnered with Thirty Tigers to form the imprint Triple Tigers, boasts a roster that includes Eli Young Band, Kaleo, Chase Rice, Joe Nichols, Josh Abbott Band, Ryan Hurd, The Cadillac Three, MISSIO, Scotty McCreery and Wheeler Walker Jr., among others. The company has offices in Nashville and Austin.

Good Time's clients include Judah and the Lion, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, Ellie Holcomb, Kris Allen, Penny and Sparrow, and Wilder.

"When the opportunity to unite with such a creative and multifaceted company as Good Time Inc. presented itself," relates Triple 8 founding partner Couri, "we immediately recognized the benefit this affords us all to extend the amount of services we provide our combined rosters even further. These are more of our kind of folks.”

Triple 8 partner Kalmick added that the Good Time folks "bring a similar ‘get it done’ style and a ton of passion into any artist’s career, and we welcome the addition of their fine stable of artists."

"We feel very fortunate to have found a like-minded team at Triple 8,” shares Good Time Inc. CEO and Founder Paul Steele, adding that he relished "this opportunity to continue to build upon the solid foundation we have laid together and expand within the vibrancy of Triple 8, to better serve our artists and one another.”

Unaccountably, the two companies elected to break the story through us, though we have never provided a good time to anyone.
