Ryan Grubb | Owner + Producer
As an entrepreneur, Ryan Grubb has flourished in every facet of his professional journey creating many successful businesses filled with lifelong relationships that he cherishes daily.
His latest project, Nashline Country, which he is the sole owner of, is a piece of his mastery both from a visionary and technological aspect making it one of very few outlets outside of major radio groups in Music City that has direct access to Country Radio.
Dating back to the early 2000’s, Ryan was fortunate enough to learn how to build a business from the ground up at the family’s printing company O’Neil Printers. His father, Frank Grubb, has owned and operated O’Neils for over 30 years making it the oldest commercial printing company still in business to date.
From there, Ryan landed a job in the newspaper industry at the Daily Interlake as a multimedia account executive and assistant advertising director where he won many awards for outstanding sales performance, best advertising series, best creative design, and highest grossing revenue in a single sales year.
His start in the music industry really began working for what was at the time one of the largest public relations firms in Nashville where he ran his own division of the company constructing sets for on camera artist interviews, formatting media days, and working with radio in the promotion of artists on the companies roster. When the company abruptly closed in late 2017 Ryan set out to become a content producer creating a need for program directors to use his content across the nation.
Ryan is no stranger to the wilderness with roots of growing up in Kalispell, MT; a gateway to unlimited freshwater lakes, rivers, hiking and snow trails via Glacier National Park. From freestyle skiing, whitewater rafting, fishing, and sailboat racing Ryan grew up in a place where one might consider it to be God’s Country.
