An extension of MusicRowSearch, WHO KNEW Nashville is a bi-monthly event designed to provide unique perspectives from many of the music industry’s most accomplished executives and brightest minds. Think “Shark Tank” + TED Talks + speed dating. It’s the next generation of Meet Up. The event serves as a fertile hunting ground for talent, trends and who’s making it happen. Everyone who attends gets a birds’ eye view of who’s new and who’s next.

“WHO KNEW Nashville is an event series inspired by my mission to connect people. Nashville is one and half degrees of separation. I kept meeting and seeing the incredible wealth of knowledge, experience and talent and thought ‘How do I get all of these people in one room?’

That’s how WHO KNEW started. Beginning in 2015, our sold out events feature the most innovative minds, anarchists, entrepreneurs and trend setters in the music industry. Each event highlights a topic that’s real and right now.  Real conversations. Real connections.”
