Bart Allmand Bio:
Hailing from the small town of Holdredge, Nebraska,
At a very young age Bart began to play drums and guitar, giving him the yearning to work
in the music industry someday.

In 1987, Bart moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University and to obtain a job in the music

He began his career at 16th Avenue Records working in promotion, covering secondary
markets. While at 16th Avenue Records he worked with acts like Charlie Pride and Canyon (which
later became Lonestar).

Because of his love of playing music, Bart formed a rock band called Asfault Jungle with several friends and played over 100 shows a year.

Soon he was hired by RCA as Mid-West Promotion Manager. He had the opportunity to work
such acts as Clint Black, Alabama, Martina McBride, Restless Heart, Don Williams, Robert Ellis
Orrall and K.T. Oslin.

In 1994, Bart formed 3rd Coast Entertainment, a promotion and marketing group. After three years, he was offered a great opportunity to start up Monument Records as National Director of Promotion. At Monument the highlight of his record promotion career came when he was instrumental in breaking one of country’s top acts, the Dixie Chicks.

When Bart was on the road during promo tours, he
continued his love of playing guitar by playing and singing harmony with his artists.
While out with Jeffrey Steele, he formed a friendship that later turned into a new career opportunity. Jeffrey encouraged Bart to pursue his lifelong dream of being a songwriter.

In 2003, Bart signed his first publishing deal with Windswept Publishing/3 Ring Circus Music
(Jeffrey Steele’s publishing company).
Before he signed publishing deal, Bart got his first cut with Brooks and Dunn entitled “You Can’t
Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl.” This was his first demo, hold, cut and single. In the
winter of 2003, the song was peaked in the charts at #3 and stayed in the top five for 9 weeks.
In late 2005, his song “Brand New Girlfriend” recorded by Steve Holy started to chart. In September 2006, it hit #1,

Bart was hired as Vice President of record promotion at Big Loud Mountain in early 2014.
