Clayton Hutson is one of the most respected names in the music industry. An entrepreneur, he has built his business from the ground up. Previously employed for someone else, Hutson decided to branch out on his own when the recession caused the company for which he was working to fall on hard times.
Deciding to become his own boss proved to be one of Clayton’s best decisions. He has since worked with artists such as
- Jennifer Nettles
- the late Billy Graham
- the late Prince
- Kid Rock
Hutson was actually Billy Graham’s sound engineer, but his heart has always been with rock ‘n’ roll, so he eventually linked up with the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses, Kid Rock, and Kelly Clarkson so that he could do what he loves: help put on musical performances.
Hutson is known far and wide for his work, and whenever a performer has an excellent show, the artist does not neglect to tell other performers about the man who made it all possible.
Hutson’s talents as a stage manager has now landed him work with the country music duo and married couple, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
The stage manager with 20 years of experience is working with the duo for the second half of their tour, Soul2Soul: The World Tour. Learn more: https://www.allmusic.com/artist/clay-hutson-mn0001881174
This particular tour was only supposed to last for about eight months in 2017.
However, McGraw and Hill have long been adored by fans, so the show is back by popular demand.
Soul2Soul: The World Tour performed 70 concerts in 2017, all of which were sold out.
What does Hutson have to say about working with Hill and McGraw? The stage manager says that he is deeply honored.
Hutson says that the pair puts on excellent performances and that he is thrilled to be working with them.
The tour is set to kick off in Richmond, Virginia and features many opening acts, including
- Margo Price
- Devin Dawson
- Caitlyn Smith
