Sony Music Publishing‘s administration division in Nashville will relocate to Nashville’s Music Row area, having signed a lease to move into the 17th + Grand building (located at 1001 17th Ave.) from its current location in downtown Nashville at 424 Church Street, a source has confirmed to Billboard. The move is slated to take place later this year.
Sony Music Publishing’s entire administration division is located in Nashville and will now occupy a 24,000-square-foot space on the eighth floor of the 17th + Grand building. The move will shift the admin division closer to SMP Nashville’s creative office, located at 8 Music Square West. Among the songwriters signed to Sony Music Publishing Nashville’s roster are Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson.
17th + Grand is a nine-story building totaling over 166,000 square feet of retail and office space, with amenities including a roof terrace, club-level fitness and locker rooms, a conference center and more. Other tenants in the building include property management company Carter-Haston and City National Bank.
Nashville Business Journal first reported the relocation.
Other major music company moves in the city in recent years include the Universal Music Group Nashville office relocation from 401 Commerce Street to its current location at 222 2nd Ave. S. in 2019. The Academy of Country Music moved its headquarters from California to Nashville’s Wedgewood-Houston area in 2022, leasing space at Nashville Warehouse Company. Meanwhile, AEG Presents is set to relocate its regional headquarters to Nashville Yards by 2025, while CAA is also set to relocate its Nashville office to Nashville Yards that year.
