Industry Noize: Kevin Neal Exits Buddy Lee

Kevin Neal, president of Buddy Lee Attractions and agent to Jason Aldean, has exited the company.

Not much further is known. However, it appears that when one has a hot act like Jason Aldean, one tends to strike while the iron is hot. And it also appears that contracts can have ending dates.

Pollstar would not be surprised if Neal and Aldean soon reappear at a top agency.

Also in the works: Donna Lee will soon be named CEO of Buddy Lee.

“The announcement of BLA’s expansion is paralleled with the departure of the agency’s former President, Kevin Neal, who has stepped down to pursue alternate career goals more closely suited to his vision and areas of interest and expertise,” BLA said in a press release.
