Industry veterans Susan Nadler and Evelyn Shriver, who charmed audiences with their podcast Shady Ladies of Music City, are set to return with season three this fall. Ahead of its launch, the duo have signed with Morris Higham Management for representation.
Nadler and Shriver have worked behind the scenes building countless iconic artists and musicians’ careers, becoming legends on Music Row and beyond. In a matter of only a few years, they infiltrated and disrupted the Nashville music industry in the ‘80s and ‘90s, becoming the first women ever to helm a major Nashville record label, Asylum Records.
The next season of Shady Ladies will focus on the state of the music industry today, including topics such as inclusivity, censorship and extremism. New episodes will be available weekly through the holidays beginning Nov. 10.
“We launched this podcast as a way to archive a lot of the stories about a town and industry we love,” shares Nadler. “Now that we’re out of the day-to-day, we can talk about it in a different way that illustrates a lot of how things used to be and perhaps even answer why they are the way they are today,” adds Shriver. “But without the filter—because we can,” Nadler interjects.
“Evelyn and Susan’s perspectives and stories are not just entertaining, they’re incredibly telling of how the country music industry got to the billion-dollar business it is today,” shares Morris Higham President, Clint Higham. “Our community, business and industry’s changing every day and it’s of upmost importance we all appreciate and respect its roots as we build on what their generation of leadership established.”
