Moore Resigns From CMA

Steve Moore has submitted his resignation as CEO of the Country Music Association. The resignation was official June 30.

“After nearly four years in this position, and given the phenomenal success that the CMA team has achieved, this seemed like an appropriate time to step aside and pursue other corporate and philanthropic opportunities,” Moore said.

Troy Tomlinson, the Country Music Association Board of Directors chairman, praised Moore’s dedication to the CMA.
After serving as interim CEO, Moore became CEO in 2010. Some of his accomplishments include securing a long-term extension of the CMA Awards show on ABC television and, under his watch, the latest CMA Music Festival in Nashville had record attendance.

Moore, who began his career as GM of Nashville’s Starwood Amphitheatre, was the head of Moore Entertainment, which was bought by TBA Entertainment. He eventually became a senior VP at AEG Live before taking on the role of CMA commander in chief.
