Veteran agent Shannon Casey has joined Wasserman Music as SVP, Fairs and Festivals, effective Oct. 1. She will be based in the agency’s Nashville office.
Casey spent more than two decades at Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in Nashville, and has represented many of the top live entertainers in the music business. A Belmont University graduate, Casey has been a volunteer and concert committee member at Thistle Farms and Thistle Stop Cafe, served on the board of the Nashville Film Festival, and coordinated the CAA Foundation’s philanthropic efforts with Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) and The PENCIL Foundation. She is a member of the Recording Academy, the Academy of Country Music and The Country Music Association.
“The addition of Shannon to Wasserman Music brings irreplaceable experience and expertise in a rapidly evolving economy in fairs and festivals,” says Senior Vice President Lenore Kinder. “She has cultivated decades of meaningful relationships with her buyers, and I have no doubt they’re just as eager to get back to business with her as we are!”
“I am delighted to join the Wasserman Music team,” shares Casey. “I look forward to working with some of the most passionate and respected agents in the business. I can’t wait to reconnect with all the Fair and Festival talent buyers, with whom it has been my pleasure to work over the years, and I’m excited about creating new touring opportunities for a dynamic roster of talented artists.”
