Full-service talent management agency, Trend Management, is making the most of its Nashville expansion with a country-filled, kick-off party to the genre’s largest festival of the year. One of the fastest-growing influencer management and influencer marketing companies in the country, Trend welcomed Jordan Davis, Russell Dickerson and more to the Sonos Stage at Hampton Social last night amongst a packed crowd, as the rooftop space was transformed into a western-inspired saloon.

Celebrating one year since opening the Trend Nashville office, the night was brimming with top rising talent, including Wesley Dean, Jordana Bryant, Madeline Edwards, Mackenzie Carpenter, Avery Anna, Carter Faith and Laci Kaye Booth who performed, hosted by Nashville’s very own, Alecia Davis. With a dress code of “Cowboy Couture,” guests arrived in style and enjoyed specialty cocktails inspired by the theme as well as drinks provided in partnership with Gin & Juice by Snoop and Dre. Attendees also had the opportunity to receive complimentary saloon-inspired portraits photographed by Katie Kauss, as well as custom fine line tattoos for a lasting memento of the night. With the four-day CMA Fest ahead, the excitement in downtown Nashville was at an all-time high as ACM Winner and five-time no. 1 artist Russell Dickerson took the stage for a surprise performance ahead of 2024 ACM Song of the Year winner, Jordan Davis, who will be playing on the main stage at Nissan Stadium tonight. 

Founded in 2019, Trend Management helps creators and brands take advantage of the creator economy to build their business through smart partnerships with a boutique-style, client-first approach. With bi-coastal representation in New York City and Los Angeles and locations in Nashville in addition to the Houston, Texas headquarters, Trend continues to grow at the lead of CEO and founder, Ted Raad. Providing transparency, advocacy, and authenticity, the company has formed unique partnerships that help digital creators grow their businesses. Boasting a star-studded roster of social media influencers, creators and entertainers across the lifestyle, fashion, entertainment and sports industries, including Nashville-based talent such as lifestyle influencers Alexa Anglin and Caleigh Hardy, who is also the wife of country music artist HARDY, and viral TikTok creators and internet personalities, Danae Hays and Cecily Bauchmann, among many others with a roster totaling over 100 digital talent across North America.

Making an official expansion to Nashville in the spring of 2023, the office is located in the bustling Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood on 4th Avenue South and is indicative of extensive plans for the future of the company. Ted Raad founded Trend in 2019, after his wife and lifestyle influencer, Dede Raad (@dressupbuttercup), garnered a massive online following and grew her business. When Raad noticed gaps in the talent management industry that his wife experienced firsthand, he sought to form a company that always puts the client first. What started as a 3-person roster has now grown to over 100 and continues to grow as they expand into new territories. As Trend Management’s roster expands in Nashville, their intimate, high level of client service allows creators across all fields to concentrate fully on what they love to do — creating engaging content and connecting with their followers. 

With a passion for the creators they represent and extensive knowledge of influencer marketing, Trend Management’s flourishing roster solidifies its position as a top player in the ever-evolving industry. With the latest expansion to Nashville proving to be a success, plus exciting plans for the remainder of 2024, Trend looks forward to welcoming new creators into the family for what is sure to be another marquee year for the company.
