NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) — Nashville-based management duo of Doc McGhee and Scott McGhee are officially parting ways, at least as business partners.
The two brothers announced the windup of their 25-year business partnership in McGhee Entertainment with Scott McGhee launching his own company 1˚ Entertainment Music & Management Group.
1˚ Entertainment will provide brand consulting, digital and social media strategy consultation, as well as content creation for alternative distribution with an eye towards artist tie-ins.
Doc McGhee Entertainment will continue “business as usual” and Doc is currently working on an autobiography about his experiences working with artists such as Kiss, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, and Hootie & The Blowfish.
“We were a good team; our skill sets complemented one another,” said Doc McGhee in a press statement provided to Music Row. “Together, we led the way to expand international touring opportunities and lent assistance to piece the puzzle to celebrate Darius Rucker’s success in becoming the only solo artist with a No. 1 single in another format. I’m proud of the work we’ve done. Our separation is spawned merely by personal and professional objectives, maturity and growth.”
“Doc had established the management company as a frontrunner in the music industry. He had solidified a sound business model and was managing two of the biggest bands in the world…with great success…when I came in,” Scott McGhee added. “Our varied perspectives in marketing, branding, artist development and touring, combined with our commitment to our artists, is what made McGhee Entertainment work and we worked well together.”
According to Music Row, the two brothers will continue to share an office at 21 Music Square West in Nashville.
