is a fully staffed and integrated production and entertainment company, consisting of booking and management, development and production, syndication and publishing divisions. Each division is staffed and directed by industry professionals with years of experience and knowledge in the entertainment industry. A large part of the booking and management of acts; originated in Oklahoma, Texas and Nashville. Early concentration was in Ft. Worth, Texas, Cow Town District. Deep Red Productions has formed and managed “The New Texas Playboys”, “Johnny and the Fireballs”, “Jason Meadows” etc.
We have produced TV and film in cooperation with Granite House Productions of Austin, Texas. Some of these productions include, “The Yellow Rose of Texas”, “The Nashville Gospel Music Hour” and “The Power Lunch Gospel Hour” both hosted and emceed by Ronnie Bishop. Deep Red Production’s major presence during the 1980’s and 90’s, in Ft. Worth was under the direction of Mr. Fred Mendoza, who at the time, was involved in the discovery, development and signing of LeAnn Rimes, Steve Holly and others. Jason Meadows, of the “Nashville Star” was signed to a management and production contract in 2000 by our President and CEO Mr. William Jones, where he diligently worked the entertainment venues and circuits of Nashville. Jason is a tremendous talent, with a beautiful wife (Amber), and son to support him 100%. We currently manage three new hot sensation acts from Oklahoma, Tennessee and North Carolina.
DRP Publishing currently has in house writers that have penned number one hits by numerous great artists. DRP is a people company; in the business of helping other people achieve and further their dreams. The entertainment business is a people business. People are the main asset. Any CEO or company that fails to recognize that fact will also fail to reach its goals and those of its clients. The company has consistently and steadily grown since its formation in 1985, by Mr. Jones. However, the people that staff and direct the day to day operations of the following divisions are irreplaceable and are the reason for this growth and success.
is run and directed by William A. Jones and associate manager Mr. Fred Mendoza. Both have a very successful track record and years of experience working with Name Acts (Stars), like LeAnn Rimes, Steve Holy, Jason Meadows, Claude Gray and the development of new acts. William, as chairman of Gospel Music International, also works closely with the huge Christian music industry, which all headquarter in Nashville.
Most of these value the experience and exposure their artists have gained over the years through their appearances on many of GMI’s TV shows and productions. One of these shows “The Nashville Gospel Music Hour” gave Jason Meadows and others their first opportunity for TV exposure. Jason, through his hard work and talent went on to “Nashville Star” in 2004 and his debut album in 2007.

She has had to return to Texas and Oklahoma the past few years to care for her grandmother. This relocation allows her to be readily available to clients in those areas. The talent pool from these two states has been endless. If not for Texas and Oklahoma, there would be no Nashville, as we know it.
