Creative Artists Agency (CAA) hosted its 27th annual CAA Nashville BBQ at Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint on June 3. More than 540 people were in attendance at the event, which raised more than $54,000 for Communities in Schools of Tennessee at Nashville and PENCIL, two organizations supporting students at local public schools.

Clients and friends of the agency were on hand, including Lady Antebellum, Kid Rock, Little Big Town, Darren Criss, Chase Rice, Russell Dickerson, Lauren Alaina, Cassadee Pope, Derrick Henry, Rex Ryan, and Colton Underwood. CAA Nashville co-founders Rod Essig and John Huie, and CAA Nashville co-heads Brian Manning, Marc Dennis and Darin Murphy were also in attendance.

“CAA has always been an active supporter of causes close to the Nashville community and we are proud to continue a tradition that helps countless students benefit from important programs through Communities in Schools of Tennessee and PENCIL,” said Dennis.

Communities in Schools helps with student dropout prevention and PENCIL works to connect community resources to Metro Nashville Public Schools. Both have longstanding relationships with the agency.
