OH, ZARLING (UPDATE)

It's official: John Zarling has joined Randy Goodman's Sony Music Nashville as EVP, Marketing & New Business.

Until being tapped by Goodman, the well-respected Zarling was SVP Partnership Marketing & Promotion Strategy at Big Machine Label Group; he has been at BMLG since its inception in 2005.

"As one of the most respected out-of-the-box marketers in our business, I’m thrilled to have John join our Sony Music Nashville team," Goodman proclaimed.  "I’m looking forward to working with him on a daily basis, having respected his work with Big Machine Label Group from afar.  I have no doubt he will make significant and immediate contributions to our artist and product development efforts.”

:I have spent my entire career working with and studying some of the Nashville music business’ true visionaries,” said Zarling, a California native who began his career in the promo department of Mercury Records in 2001. "After a long partnership as part of Scott Borchetta’s launch team at Big Machine over a decade ago, literally writing our own rules and building a dream from the ground up, it is an honor to be able to join the team that Randy Goodman has put in place at one of Nashville’s most iconic labels. Having always made artists and music my priority, being able to foster the incredible roster of legends, superstars, breakout stars and developing artists that make up Sony Nashville’s roster thrills me."
