1245 Branding CAR
7/17/18

The conversation about brand partnerships is shifting. Country music is crossing over, and Nashville is diversifying. Country fans are loyal and engaged. The artists are passionate storytellers—ones who take pride in what they do, eat, drink, drive and wear. They have direct personal relationships with their fans because of their shared, similar lifestyles. And the format thrives on careers, as opposed to singles. The future of branding in Nashville has never been brighter.

The third installment of Grammy Salute to Music Legends demonstrated both the format’s deep strengths and its built-in vulnerabilities. When the honorees participate fully—when they are on hand to accept and perform—the show soars, beyond the prestigious but staid Kennedy Center Honors, where the honorees are confined to a balcony and aren’t even permitted to speak.
