McNeill Designs inks agreement with HSA, Nashville to create a line of board games, card games, and electronic games geared toward Country Music fans

September 8, 2011

McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds recently announced the official signing of a representation agreement with HSA, located in Nashville, Tennessee. The independent firm, represented by Preshias Harris, Suzzane Skinner and Kat Atwood, will work collectively, and in alliance with McNeill Designs, to produce and promote a new line of board games, card games and electronic games geared specifically toward Country Music enthusiasts!

“As active members of the Music City community, the ladies of HSA have their fingers on the pulse of Country Music,” said McNeill Designs’ President and CEO Donald McNeill. “This version of the [You’ve been Sentenced!] game will embrace the popularity of the Country Music genre throughout the USA and globally. HSA will be instrumental in developing the language for this sector of the game, as well as opening the door to potential partnerships with industry associations and Country Music artists.”

Accounting for nearly 15% of the music product sold since 2006 (in addition to CD sales and on the radio airways) Country Music has made its impression in various books, television, magazines and games; artists have been recognized with Presidential honors and appeared in movies; and corporate sponsors have come forward with multi-million dollar deals utilizing the Country Music platform to elevate product awareness.

“The statistics support our endeavor to branch into the Country Music arena,” McNeill added. “With existing add-on decks such as NASA Space Terminology, Gourmet Cuisine, Pop Culture, Sports Highlights and more, adding Country Music terminology opens the field to an entirely new family of gamers.”

According to the most recent Country Music Associate Research Report available (2006):

•  31.7% of Country Music listeners reside in the top 25 DMAs

•  More than 48.1 million adults listen to Country Music radio stations nationwide each week, reaching more listeners than any other format

•  More than 27% of adult radio listeners tune to Country Music radio

HSA’s first course of business is to prepare the Country Music vocabulary list and extend an outreach to Country Music artists and potential sponsors to establish working relationships with McNeill Designs.
