Nestled between Nashville’s trendy Gulch neighborhood and prestigious Vanderbilt University, is the area referred to as “Music Row,” home to many of the most talented singers, songwriters, producers, and studio musicians in the world.
Music Row is the hub of a multi-billion-dollar industry across all genres of music with record companies, music publishers, recording studios, unions, trade associations, press and publications, personal and business managers, lawyers and publicity firms.
Well-known Belmont University sits high on the hill overlooking Music Row. The university's graduates fill the ranks of Music Row executives and creative members, along with those from Middle Tennessee State University. World famous country and Christian artists, such as Amy Grant and Brad Paisley, received their education at Belmont’s renowned music business program.
Nashville’s Music Row is poised at the forefront of the most challenging issues facing creators and intellectual property owners in the fast-paced, constantly evolving music and technology worlds.
Many of the businesses on Music Row (such as the Adams and Reese Music Row office) are situated in charming historic homes that have been converted into office space, reflecting the warmth which, combined with experience, hard work and passion, make the Nashville music industry the thriving success it is.
