HOW HAVE THE CHANGES IN NASHVILLE AFFECTED YOU?
“Nashville ain’t your granddaddy’s town anymore,” and that’s an inspiring thing. We’ve maintained the best traits from those who came before us and at the same time we’ve thrown open the doors and greeted new creators from every corner of the music universe. We sort of stand with our arms wide open and say, “Bring us your music. We get it. We celebrate it.” We are becoming the great new melting pot of music and culture, whether one is speaking of creative services or worldwide administration. I am actually more excited and inspired than ever before.
