3.  Learning From Legends Series with Jim Ed Norman
July 26, 4-6 p.m. at Quonset Hut (34 Music Square East)
Here are two things you don't often hear in the same sentence: "really creative" and "great manager." Unless you are talking about Jim Ed Norman – a man who has led two huge record labels and written arrangements for and/or produced some of the most iconic albums ever recorded. This is a man who gets stuff done and is also one of the best storytellers you will ever hear. Don't miss this rare chance to meet and hear from a true legend of Nashville's music industry! 
We will also be hosting a happy hour after the event at The Rusty Nail (formerly South), 1524 Demonbreun Street. REGISTER NOW
