Johnny said, “I’m looking forward to rapidly pushing the culture forward with this new venture.  Peter Edge and Mark Pitts have both been great supporters of me for quite some time, so this partnership was natural. District 18 Entertainment will be a destination for the next generation of superstars. Stay tuned.”
