Dale Bobo is Senior Vice President of Big Deal Music Nashville working with songwriters Brett Beavers, Brad Tursi, Dave Berg, Bonnie Baker, Jason White, Driver Williams, among others.  Bobo began his career in the Nashville office of Chappell/Intersong where he ran the tape room and, after the acquisition of Chappell by Warner Bros. Music in 1987, Tim Wipperman brought him over to plug songs which he did happily for many years.  Eventually becoming SVP/GM of Warner/Chappell Nashville, Bobo lead a formidable staff of publishing enthusiasts celebrating 22 number one records and working with hit writers Marv Green, Steven Dale Jones, Wendell Mobley, Tim Nichols, John Rich, Wynn Varble, Chris Wallin and others.  Rusty Gaston and Bobo established the successful This Music venture during this time.  Later Bobo became Executive Vice President of Chrysalis Music, where he oversaw all aspects of the Nashville office working with producer/writers Brett Beavers and Jeff Stevens and songwriters Danny Orton and Jim McCormick.  Bobo was brought in by Los Angeles based publisher Kenny Macpherson, President of Chrysalis North America and later founder of Big Deal Music.  Bobo has served on the Board Of Directors of The Academy Of Country Music and the Country Music Association, is a former chairman of the Copyright Society Of The South, is a Leadership Music Alumnus (class of 1995) and a proud member of the Association Of Independent Music Publishers.
