Adams and Reese Nashville Office Partner in Charge Lynn Morrow has been selected among the 2015 “Top Women in Music City” by the Nashville Business Journal.

To come up with the list of winners, the NBJ asked for nominations of women working in the music business who are making a creative and economic impact on the industry. The nominations were then given to a judging committee consisting of women music professionals from Los Angeles and New York City. These judges scored the nominees, and NBJ’s internal judging committee made the final selections. Kimberly Schlapman and Karen Fairchild will be the keynote speakers at the awards dinner at the Omni Nashville Hotel on Sept. 24.

Morrow joined Adams and Reese in 2001 to assist in the development of the firm’s Entertainment and New Media Practice Group.
