APA Sr. VP and Partner, Steve Lassiter, who heads the agency’s Nashville office, welcomed BubbleUp VP of Marketing Scott Heuerman and his staffers to the penthouse of One Nashville Place, APA’s new local office.

“BubbleUp has become one of the best online marketing agencies in the country, especially when it relates to entertainment. We have the pleasure of working with these guys on various artists on a day-to-day basis, so it was great to get to know them better in an informal session,” said Lassiter.
