Virginia Davis

G Major Management
Founder and Managing Partner
Over the past 15 years, Virginia Davis has established herself as a rising executive and entrepreneur in the Nashville and greater music community. Davis oversees the careers of CMA and ACM winning, GRAMMY-nominated and current ACM Male Vocalist of the Year nominee Thomas Rhett and emerging female vocalist Danielle Bradbery, winner of NBC's Season 4 "The Voice."  Davis is the managing partner at G Major, an artist management company she launched in 2013 and recently co-ventured with Roc Nation. Additionally, Davis oversees signings and operation of Home Team Publishing, a joint venture with Thomas Rhett, his father Rhett Akins and Roc Nation. Over the past nine years as an artist manager, Davis has overseen the campaigns of seven multi-format albums and tour launches with four-time GRAMMY-nominee Jewel, along with multiple television properties, a children’s music and book line in partnership with Fisher Price and Simon and Schuster and Jewel's recent memoir “Never Broken." She continues to oversee Thomas Rhett's steady rise into music super stardom. Davis started managing Rhett when he was a 20-year-old college student and since that time, Thomas' career has skyrocketed with seven chart topping No. 1 multi-Platinum singles over two albums, recent sold out arena-level headlining tour launch, television and radio efforts. Davis started her music business career at NSAI, participating in lobbying and legislative efforts for one of the biggest historical achievements for songwriters: the passing of the Songwriters Capital Gains Tax Equity Bill. She served as NSAI's Marketing, Sponsorship and Tin Pan South director until her exit in 2005 when she was tapped to run RAYBAW Records, a joint venture between Big and Rich and Warner Bros. Nashville. In 2008, Davis transitioned into management joining Irving Azoff’s company Front Line Management, taking over day-to-day responsibilities for Jewel.
