Grady Forms Management Alliance

New York based Crush Management and Nashville music vet John Grady have joined forces to form a new venture. Along with Crush principals Jonathan Daniel and Bob McLynn, Grady will open Crush Nashville.

The first two artists on the Crush Nashville roster are Sony Music Nashville recording artist Kristen Kelly, and the duo of Sarah Zimmerman and Justin Davis.

“Getting to know Jonathan, Bob and their staff in New York has been an enormous gift for me,” said Grady. “We have been working on this for months, and during that time there has never been one conversation that did not include music. What I see in the Crush operation is very inspiring to me. It is all about the present, the future and an absolute respect for the music we represent and the artists who create it. I see Crush as a major player in the future of this industry, and that is what I want to do with the rest of my career.”

The Crush artist roster spans numerous musical genres and includes Train, Fall Out Boy, Panic At the Disco, Travie McCoy & Gym Class Heroes and Courtney Love.

Crush Management Nashville will be located at 1227 17th Ave. S., #2, Nashville, TN 37212 and John Grady can be reached via email at [email protected]
