December 4, 2013 - Kay Clary helped lay the groundwork for Nashville’s Americana music scene, working in public relations and artist management for Jason & the Scorchers, the Georgia Satellites, Billy Joe Shaver, and other critically acclaimed roots-rock acts in the 1980s and ’90s. In 2005, Clary joined BMI and rose to executive director of media relations and corporate communications before stepping down from her post last year. In both entrepreneurial and corporate settings, she has championed influential artists and earned her reputation as a musical tastemaker. This interview is illustrated with photos, recordings, and film footage. The Louise Scruggs Memorial Forum, made possible by the Gibson Foundation, is presented annually to honor a music industry leader who continues the legacy of pioneer Louise Scruggs.
