Stan Strickland

In the late 1980s, after 10 years of a vertical run with Top Billing International and Regency/Triad (which would become WME), Stan created Rainmaker Inc. Then in 1997, he formed Skaggs Family Records with Ricky Skaggs. The first artist signed under Skaggs’ label was The Del McCoury Band, which led to a more than 20 year management association with Del that has resulted in major career achievements including induction into The Grand Ole Opry, two Grammy Awards, a National Heritage Fellowship, the launch of Del’s own record label, and the creation of DelFest one of the premier roots music festivals in the country.  Rainmaker currently manages over a dozen acts in roots and jazz, as well as managing multiple independent record labels and producing and consulting on a handful of music festivals. This year marks the launch of an agency wing of Rainmaker called Rainmaker LIVE!, under the direction of Mike Drudge
