Sony Music Nashville has appointed senior VP Taylor Lindsey as its new head of A&R. The move follows March 16’s announcement that longtime head Jim Catino will leave the company at the end of June.
“It is not often that we can so quickly and naturally look to an internal candidate to succeed a notable executive but there was never any doubt that Taylor Lindsey should fill this role,” said Sony Music Nashville chairman/CEO Randy Goodman in a statement. “Since I arrived at Sony Music Nashville, Taylor has become a crucial part of our company. Her early and on-going work with Maren Morris, Luke Combs, Old Dominion, Mitchell Tenpenny and most recently Niko Moon gives me great confidence that she is the right executive at the right time to lead Sony Music Nashville’s A&R team to the next level.”
