Bradley Collins, a 15 year veteran of BMI, is an Executive Director of the Creative department in Nashville and is always on the lookout for the next best country songwriter. Organizing the legendary number one parties, industry-wide celebrations for the songwriters of hit singles, is one of Bradley’s main responsibilities, as well as oversight of nightly showcases and events, including the fabled Buzz at the Basement, which has spawned numerous publishing deals for up-and-coming songwriters. Bradley also maintains the publishing company rosters, keeping the full list of affiliated BMI publishers. Bradley is also involved with the planning of CMA Fest, SXSW, Tin Pan South and IBMA.
Bradley is active in the music community, serving on the boards for ACM and Leadership Music. He is also on the Troubadour Society advisory committee for the Country Music Hall of Fame and his community involvement includes the Knoxville chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Mid-South Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. He is an alumni of Leadership Music and Solid.
With interests ranging from art to vinyl collecting to golf and tennis, Bradley stays busy in Nashville, with music always on his mind. He’s at a show nearly every night, supporting songwriters of all levels in their career, from just-getting-started, to seasoned pro. Bradley has signed Brett Eldredge, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson and Chris Young. He’s excited for recent signees Anderson East, Aubrie Sellers and songwriter Tommy Cecil.
