MMA Creative Nashville’s National Accounts Manager, Veronica Greene, died Thursday, Sept. 17. She was 37.

Greene led the sponsorship acquisition and management team for the Americana Music Association since 2013. She previously served on the board of the Nashville Junior Chamber of Commerce and received the Board Member of the Year Award in 2005.

“It’s been a struggle these last few days and words on paper cannot possibly convey how truly magnificent Veronica was. Those who knew her would testify, there was no happier soul on the planet,” said Americana Music Association’s Jed Hilly. “We are torn by our loss, but march forward knowing her spirit is with all of us. She was a dear, dear friend.”

Veronica is survived by her parents, Ronnie and Judith Barger, of Spring City; her sister, Krissy (David Tallent), of Spring City; her nieces, Davinity, Alexandra and Alyssa Tallent; her nephew, Garrett Tallent; her dog, Bogey and; “the best boyfriend on the planet,” Brooks Beauchap. She lived her life surrounded by her Rhea County family, Nashville family and tons of friends.

Funeral services were held in her hometown of Spring City, Tenn. on Sunday, Sept. 20. Memorials may be made to the Trustee Renovation Fund at Spring City United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 158, Spring City, TN, 37381.
