Leadership Music Announces Class of 2015

lmLeadership Music’s 26th class will be composed of 46 industry leaders from across the country. Founded in 1989 by eleven music industry alumni of Leadership Nashville, Leadership Music has graduated more than 1000 leaders. The annual program is designed to create a forum for established music community leaders to identify and explore issues currently affecting the music industry, as well as provide the opportunity to introduce people who would not ordinarily meet and help them build lasting relationships.

“The Leadership Music Class of 2015 is an impressive group of industry professionals with a wealth of experience and expertise from a diverse field of music businesses,” said Jeff Gregg, agent at CAA, who, as immediate past president of the board of directors, chaired the selection committee. “Choosing 46 applicants from among hundreds who applied is one of the most daunting tasks I’ve ever faced. The selection committee, composed of 20 alumni from every facet of the industry, deliberates over a four week period, and makes every effort to choose the most balanced and diverse class possible. We all consider it a privilege to be charged with playing a role in the future of this organization.”
