Abbey To SoundsLikeNashville

Parade Magazine Assoc. Editor Alison Abbey has joined Universal Music Group website SoundsLikeNashville as Editor-in-Chief, following the departure of Editor Lauren Jo Black (CAT 1/17). "I look forward to shining a light on the artists, events and brands that have made country music, and Nashville itself, such a part of the pop-culture consciousness," says Abbey. Prior stops include a PR/digital and social media post at Spanx in Atlanta. Abbey was also a contributing writer for The Atlantan, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Jezebel Magazine. She's on the job May 30; reach her at 615-340-6691 or here.
