Clay Hutson Completes 2018 Live World Tours With a Blast

In 2018, Clay Hutson traveled over the world producing, managing, and designing live world tours for known artists with great success. He worked for Kid Rock, Halsey, and Tim McGraw and Faith Hill as production and stage manager. Hundreds of thousands of patrons packed venues for the Red Blooded Rock N’ Roll, American Rock N’ Roll, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, and Soul2Soul events. Clay was busy last year beginning in January until the end of November managing productions and the stages. While serving the entertainment industry for almost 20 years, he gained much experience and offers his advice to future producers.

Kid Rock’s Red Blooded Rock N’ Roll Tour and The American Rock N’ Roll Tour were two successful events Clay Hutson managed in 2018. He worked on the first tour, American Rock N’ Roll earlier in the year as the stage manager followed by Red Blooded in August. In between the tours, Hutson worked on the Soul2Soul World Tour for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on May 31 in Richmond, VA.

The best advice Clay Hutson shares with his followers is to always be true themselves which leads to being truthful with others including family members. His truthfulness is a characteristic that attracts repetitive clients and referrals while building a reputation in the music industry. By working long and hard hours in his career and developing an authentic character, he accomplished growing his business. Clay never had to advertise to increase his clientele because his dedicated clients referred him to other artists looking for production, engineering, and design services.

Clay Hutson is Vice-President of Ronin Event Creative, a Nashville-based production company providing services for stage management and engineering. After earning a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from Central Michigan University and Stephen M. Ross School of Business at Michigan State University, he pursued a career in technical production. He worked at Getagrip Touring as production manager in 1999 and started his own business a few years later. Throughout his career, he worked as a manager for Prince, Kanye West, Pink, Garbage, and Guns N’ Roses. Clay travels nationally and globally to England, Singapore, Canada, and other countries.

Alex Pall Behind the Scenes

The Chainsmokers consists of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The duo have blossomed into success through their electronic music, one of the songs being “Closer,” featuring Halsey. Although they are both DJ’s, they want to be recognized as true artists that weave intimacy into dance songs that usually are not portrayed as so.

Alex Pall’s hobby and first love growing up was being a DJ. He was a DJ in New York as a side job, something he did for fun and because he was passionate about it. It was when he was playing a gig in an art gallery that he realized it was about time to start pursuing music full time. The manager he was working with at the time is still his manager to this day and introduced him to Andrew Taggart. The rest, as they say, is history.

Looking more closely at the duo, however, shows you how much dedication and love for their music there is. Alex was ambitious and driven, and really wanted to make a life out of playing music for the rest of his life. He got together with his partner everyday, like an actual job, 9-4, to gather ideas about their music and create essentially. It was not something that they talked about casually and decided to meet up later for, it was something they dedicated hard work to everyday. Alex is trying to write songs the represent him, something that he goes through in everyday life, something real. He does not want to succumb to making generic hits that mean nothing to him.

Alex Pall really wants to emphasize how important songwriting is for him. Many artists choose to have others write the songs for them, but he does not want to go down that route. Although there are other songwriters involved in the process for certain songs, Alex Pall makes sure he is a co-writer as well.

Alex Pall’s dedication, hard work, and passion for his music can be seen through the albums he has produced and the success it has accumulated. For Alex, loving what you’re doing and always striving to better yourself is ultimately what is important.
