The Society of Leaders in Development (SOLID) celebrated its 20th anniversary at a special holiday party at The Cordelle in Nashville, TN (Nov. 30), honoring SESAC’s Jayson Wyatt, Warner Music Nashville’s Cris Lacy and Manager at Lev’s House Ent., Justin Levenson.
Mayor Megan Barry presented the organization with an official proclamation, naming November 30 as SOLID day along with the office of the State of Tennessee.
The association of rising music industry professionals commemorated the last two decades and recognized the SOLID alumni who have gone on to become esteemed leaders in the entertainment industry.
Since the organization’s establishment in 1997, SOLID has raised more than $250,000 for the Nashville community through events such as Bowl For Kids’ Sake, Nashville Music Market during CMA Fest, SOLID’s annual kickball tournament, Red Rubber Showdown and the Miller Harris golf tournament, and has provided volunteer services through its Habitat for Humanity build, 343 Tribute Project to thank firefighters on Sept. 11 and SOLID’s day of service at Second Harvest Food Bank.
Tim Gray, Grayscale Marketing CEO, and SOLID past member of the year and current member of the 2017 Board of Directors added "It's been an incredible organization to be a part of and I'm excited to see what the next generation of leaders can accomplish."
Grayscale Marketing contributed to the 20th year celebration by partnering brands including Michales, Bose, Bud Light, Hendricks Gin, Monkey Shoulder, Milagro Tequila, Tullamore DEW Irish Whiskey, and preformed a number of creative services as well as provided the events slideshow featuring past and present outstanding leaders.
