Doyal, who has based his company in Nashville since 1991, is a 37-year music business veteran who began his career as a professional drummer. Later, as a booking agent, he was instrumental in the careers of many major and independent recording artists, including Toby Keith, Lonestar, Little Texas, Ricochet, Deryl Dodd and others.

In 2000, the Clif Doyal Agency curtailed the booking activities of the company to focus on artist and label management/consulting, intellectual property rights, music licensing, audio/video production and project coordination. Highlights include deals with the Kennedy Center, Smithsonian Institute, A&M Records, Sony, Sanctuary Records, Hamstein Publishing and others. 

In 2004, Doyal formed CDA Promotions-Nashville, a full-service publicity and marketing firm providing services on a national and international basis. Clients have included Shawna Russell, LiveWire, David Allan Coe, Andy Fraser (formerly of classic rock band, Free), The Roys, Billy Adams, Charlie Allen, Stella Parton, Burrito Deluxe and others. Under Doyal’s guidance, the Cherokee National Youth Choir won multiple Native American Music Awards®, and performed at the Smithsonian Institute, the Kennedy Center, the White House, and in the 2007 Macy’s Day Parade to an estimated television audience of over 44 million viewers.

Doyal has also produced numerous projects, including the DVD, Ray Price-Live in Concert. He currently resides in Nashville with his wife Patti.
