Reba McEntire has appointed longtime team member Justin McIntosh to serve as her manager, the singer announced Wednesday (Nov. 29).
McIntosh has worked with the Country Music Hall of Famer for more than a decade, ever since he joined her at her former management home, Starstruck Entertainment. At Starstruck, McIntosh served as vp of marketing & creative and also supported artists including Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton. Prior to his work at Starstruck, McIntosh was at Big Machine Label Group, where he worked on digital and marketing strategies. His career experience also includes a role with Country Radio Broadcasters as well as his own creative consulting agency. He is a member of the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association and the Recording Academy and has served on the boards of the Nashville Film Festival and The Theater Bug.
Elsewhere, McEntire expanded Leslie Matthews Dugger‘s role as her brand manager. In addition to managing Reba’s brand partnerships with Dillard’s and Justin Boots, Dugger will now serve as an integral decision-maker in McEntire’s overall brand. She has worked as McEntire’s brand manager for more than 15 years.
Additionally, Tyler Lewis has joined McEntire as management coordinator. Lewis previously served as a talent agent for Ovation Artist Group, where he worked with CeCe Winans, Dailey & Vincent and more. The Lipscomb University alumnus has also worked live events and television productions including the CMA Music Fest and CMA Awards.
“I consider my team a well-oiled machine,” McEntire said in a statement. “We have fun and we get the job done, but the best part is we like each other. Everyone brings something different to the party with their creativity and curiosity, while earning the respect of others. 2024 is going to be an amazing year!”
McEntire previously worked with Clarence Spalding at Maverick for management. Reba continues to be represented by WME, The GreenRoom PR and Tri Star Sports & Entertainment.
