AZOFF, BORCHETTA AND
DAVIS GET B.A.D.

Trio's Nashville-Based Management Company Will Represent Jewel, Steel Magnolia, More

Ever wondered what Irving Azoff would look like in a cowboy hat?

Neither did we, frankly, but now we'll get an idea as the Live Nation mogul joins with Scott Borchetta and Virginia Davis to form the Nashville-based B.A.D. Management as a division of his Front Line company.

Davis, who represents singer-songwriter Jewel, will oversee operations of the company. Eric Arnold, formerly of William Morris Endeavor, also joins as an artist manager.  B.A.D. Management will represent artists including Jewel, Steel Magnolia and Edens Edge


“I couldn’t be more pleased to team up with such dedicated and forward-thinking individuals as Irving Azoff and Scott Borchetta,” said Davis. “Together, we will direct strategies to build and maintain long-term careers that empower our artists.”

Virginia has shown natural intuition as a successful artist manager, and she was the only person we considered to spearhead this new enterprise,” said Azoff and Borchetta in a joint statement.  “We’re happy to launch this venture to provide unsurpassed creative resources for our roster of artists. Now, if we could only find a good pastrami on rye down there.”

Davis has worked with Front Line as an artist manager since December 2007.  She was previously the General Manager of RAYBAW Records, an imprint of Warner Bros. She has also held the position of National Marketing & Sponsorship Director for the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI), with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Management from the University of South Carolina.  ­

Borchetta is also the CEO of Big Machine Records, The Valory Music Company and Universal Republic Nashville.  Azoff is the CEO of Front Line Management, as well as executive chairman of Front Line's parent, Live Nation Entertainment.

The offices of B.A.D. Management will be located at 60 Music Square East, Suite 200, Nashville TN 37203
