Golden Music Nashville is closing up shop, the latest music company to fold in today’s difficult climate. The label opened three years ago with flagship act Williams Riley, and eventually added Benton Blount to the roster.

A rep for the company says the publishing division, Wide Open Music, is still in business.

Lisa Strickland served as Executive Vice President of Promotion & Marketing. She can be reached at 615-289-2319 or Brad Howell, former VP of Promotion and Marketing, can be contacted at or 615-500-2246.

It was a sign of things to come when Pres./CEO Brinson Strickland exited his post in April. He can be reached at or 615-969-0334.

CEO Noel Golden started the label in 2007 with offices in Nashville, and Greenville, SC. He had more than 25 years of experience in the music industry, including work with artists such as matchbox twenty, Edwin McCain, Tom Cochrane, Sister Hazel, Willie Nelson and Lee Ann Womack.
