If there’s one thing that Shure and Nashville share, it’s a desire to support those in the touring and recording industries to the greatest extent possible. Through an invitation from our Regional Artist Relations Manager Ryan Smith, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry was inspired to learn more about Shure’s history, core values, and dedication to serving the customer and the community. Recently, we welcomed Mayor Barry to our corporate headquarters for a tour of our Great Hall exhibit, S.N. Shure Theatre, Performance Listening Center, and product development and corporate quality labs.
The city’s rapid growth has been a vital part of the success we have enjoyed in our Nashville Artist Relations office for the past 15 years. Initially intended for a two-year trial period, our Nashville office has become an established presence with unwavering community support. This support has continued under Mayor Barry’s leadership, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Our work with legendary venues like the Grand Ole Opry on legislative matters such as spectrum issues has been invaluable. Our location inside Soundcheck and the multitude of opportunities that have come from its central location have transformed how we build relationships with artists and support touring professionals.
Mayor Barry, having a vast knowledge of the music industry as a whole, including artists and their management, studio owners, live event producers, venue operators, and equipment manufacturers, understands and appreciates our commitment to these professionals worldwide. We are honored that Mayor Barry was able to take time out of her busy schedule to tour our facility and to meet with our President and CEO Christine Schyvinck to share ideas, common challenges, and enthusiasm for the future of Shure’s presence in Nashville. We thank Mayor Barry for her continued support of Shure, and we look forward to many more years of service to the Nashville community and all that it represents for our industry.
