Nashville music executive Bob Goldstone died Sunday (July 3) after a bicycle accident in the Music City suburb of Pegram. 

The 67-year old VP of sales for Nashville-based Thirty Tigers, which handles marketing, distribution, promotion and management for artists, was found lying in the street Sunday evening. The bike he had been riding was not damaged according to Cheatham County Sheriff Mike Breedlove, but there were about 40 feet of skid marks near the bike. 

"It could have been an animal that ran in front of him that caused him to lock up his brakes," he said. "He was coming down a hill at a good rate of speed."

Goldstone was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center to be treated for a head injury and later died. He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Early in his career, Goldstone worked at Tower Records, Lieberman Enterprises, IRS Records, and Mercury Nashville. But, it was at Eminent Records where Goldstone achieved his greatest success by working with Emmylou Harris

On Tuesday, Thirty Tigers posted a tribute to Goldstone on Instagram. 

"It is with the heaviest of hearts that we mourn the passing of Bob Goldstone," the post reads. "Thirty Tigers’ Vice President of Sales and an owner, he was an integral part of the business and the spirit of Thirty Tigers. His passion for music was only surpassed by his love for his family and friends. We’ve lost the beating, loving heart of Thirty Tigers. We’ve lost a friend, a mentor, a respected colleague and someone that loved us all so much, as we loved him."

Thirty Tigers invites anyone who knew or worked with Bob to stop by and share "
stories of this man that we loved so dearly and that will be missed so greatly."
