Susan Nadler

Former music industry executive, award-winning creator and author

Where folks gather to break bread together regardless of politics and religion.

Susan Nadler’s first foray into the public eye was with a book she wrote about the time she spent in a Mexican jail –but that’s a story for another day. After finally settling in to life in Nashville, Nadler stumbled into a career in PR that would ultimately change the course of country music forever. Working with Tammy Wynette, Bobby Blue Bland, and Farm Aid, among others, and managing the career of famed country star Lorrie Morgan, Nadler built a network of legendary artists by doing things her own way. After meeting fellow renowned publicist, Evelyn Shriver, in 1988, the two teamed up to helm Asylum Records, making them the first females to run a major Nashville label. In 2001, Nadler and Shriver formed Bandit Records and released what would be the final masters from the celebrated George Jones, including the Grammy-winning album “Cold Hard Truth”. Most recently, Nadler has served as talent executive of PBS-TV show Soundstage. Nadler is a published author of three books including her autobiography about her time in prison “The Butterfly Convention”, “Good Girls Gone Bad” a collection of interviews from female prisoners, and her children’s book “Silfa, A Fairy Tale”.
