WhoWeAre   Meet the people behind Bandtwango

John Alexander

A 30-year entertainment industry veteran, John Alexander has mentored some of the biggest names in the business. His first music business client was the legendary Patty Loveless, whom he found singing in a cover band at a rock n’ roll bar in Shelby, North Carolina in 1981. Fast forward to 2012. A chance meeting in a Franklin, Tennessee restaurant with unknown singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini led to his bringing her to Black River Entertainment, his employer at the time. The rest is history.  
John’s Nashville career includes a 10 year stint as the Great American Country TV Network’s Director of Music Marketing. While there, he was involved with brand partnership deals for artists including Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, and Craig Morgan.   John left GAC in 2010, accepting the position of Vice President Strategic Marketing and Artist Management for the upstart Black River. While there he handled strategic partnerships and also handled the day to day management for Sarah Darling. He’s considered one of the top strategic music marketers in Nashville.
