Nashville label and publisher Big Loud will be welcoming executive Austen Adams as Chief Operating Officer of its Records and Publishing divisions. Adams will start his new role 9/15 and can be reached here.

The Louisiana native previously built a Nashville entertainment law practice, repping both artists and behind-the-scenes players for more than 15 years. He’s also well-versed in the fields of digital distribution and intellectual-property protection, and has worked as a day-to-day artist manager.

“Austen is coming to Big Loud at an exciting time,” shares CEO Seth England. “We’ve worked with him for many years and have watched him become a leader in this industry. Admired for his strong character and high moral standards, Austen’s reputation is second to none. These traits align perfectly with our company’s culture and we couldn’t be prouder to have him on board. With an amazing roster of artists, innovative executive team, and a family-oriented atmosphere, the future is even more bright at Big Loud.”

“I have been lucky enough to work closely with Big Loud’s founding partners for many years and can’t wait to join the incredible teams they have put together,” Adams says.
