Global talent, entertainment and sports company UTA has officially opened its new Nashville headquarters, now occupying the site of the former downtown Carnegie Library at 225 Polk Avenue.
The office was designed by award-winning firm HASTINGS Architecture, which transformed the three-story, mid-century historic building into the agency’s new Nashville headquarters. Elements of the original library have been preserved and integrated into the office with highlights such as the old book drop on the parking level.
“We are thrilled to open the doors to our new Nashville headquarters and bring new life to this historic space that will now serve as a gathering place for colleagues, artists and storytellers across the community,” says David Zedeck, Partner and Co-Head of Worldwide Music. “Nashville’s music roots run deep and these new offices are meant to reflect UTA’s commitment to sharing this city’s powerful creativity with the world.”
Over the past year, UTA Music’s Nashville office has expanded its agent ranks by bringing in key hires, including Jeffrey Hasson, Jenny DeLoach, Brett Saliba, Matt Korn and Emily Wright.
The Nashville team recently welcomed Grammy Award-nominated country band Midland and Diamond-selling Billy Ray Cyrus to the roster. Other recent signings include Brittney Spencer, Alana Springsteen, Sam Williams, Reyna Roberts, Josh Kiser, Lathan Warlick and Chase Martin, among others.
UTA also represents country stars Toby Keith, Jamey Johnson, Jimmie Allen, Matt Stell, Blanco Brown, Clay Walker, Clint Black, Wheeler Walker Jr., Ian Munsick, Elvie Shane and Chris Bandi, in addition to Young The Giant, Tori Kelly, Surfaces, Dashboard Confessional, Dayglow, COIN, Ruston Kelly, Ayron Jones, Timbaland, Blues Traveler, Laine Hardy and more.
