Craig Dunn

Collective Artist Management / Born To Fly Records
Vice President
Nashville
Dunn’s expansive background in the music industry spans over 16 years, including work with artists in a management capacity as well as building successful and comprehensive digital marketing, merchandising and ticketing campaigns. His experience in the event production and touring fields adds to the knowledge base he brings to the company’s acclaimed artist management roster.

The multi-faceted artist and brand manager joined Collective Artist Management in 2012, bringing longtime client Sara Evans, whom he has worked with in numerous capacities since 2003, to the CAM family. Prior to joining the tenured firm, he was partnered with digital marketing & merchandise company Music City Networks (MCN) as Senior Vice President. While at MCN, Dunn worked with clients Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss, Sara Evans, Josh Turner, Kelly Clarkson, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts and more overseeing the artists’ digital marketing, websites, fan clubs and fan-focused events. Notably, Dunn helped develop and implement the digital marketing strategy for Lady Antebellum alongside their management and label teams. This included launching three full websites, online marketing endeavors, and merchandise strategy for their first three albums, including the quadruple platinum selling “Need You Now.”

Also, during his tenure at MCN, Dunn launched a ticketing division to help facilitate the growing need for presale and VIP ticketing for the firm’s client roster. His diverse experience set also includes more than six years on the road with Evans and Josh Turner, overseeing merchandise sales and design and capturing and producing video content for the artists.

In addition to his entertainment industry expertise, Dunn’s experience expands to politics, having worked with Larry Craig campaign for U.S. Senate as Deputy Assistant Campaign Manager in 2002 and helping to secure a win with the highest re-election percentage Senator Craig had ever received. He also spent three years at PinnPointe Consulting Group as Director of IT and Marketing. He attended both the University of Portland and Boise State University majoring in Business Management and Marketing.
