Before launching Bar Frog Music, Randy began in radio promotion working with Eric Lee Beddingfield. As a staff songwriter, he co-wrote 8 of the songs on Eric’s project. Without the money to hire a full promotion team to work Beddingfield’s recordings, Barber took this role upon himself and the results were unprecedented. Earning five consecutive top 20 singles onthe MusicRow Country Breakout Chart, making Beddingfield the most played independent artist in the history of that chart. This success led to Eric Lee Beddingfield being named the Independent Artist of The Year for 2012 by MusicRow Magazine. Barber oversaw every aspect of ELB’s career, from booking to management while Eric was performing over 150 dates per year. This success provided Barber the opportunity to be contracted by Sidewalk Records (Imprint of Curb Records) to oversee their secondary market promotions where he worked hands on with artists including Dylan Scott, Tim Dugger and Morgan Frazier.
