CMA EVENTS VETERAN DIANE BEARDEN-ENRIGHT EXITS ASSOCIATION TO LAUNCH
PRODUCTION AND EVENT PLANNING COMPANY
NASHVILLE – After 12 years of planning and executing some of the most high-profile events in the music industry, CMA Senior Manager of Meetings and Logistics Diane Bearden-Enright has left the organization to launch her own production and event planning company, 3 Quarters Right, LLC.
“This has been my goal for some time, to step back and focus my time and creative energy on individual projects where my years of experience, professional relationships, and inventive approach to concert production and live events could make a meaningful difference for my clients,” said Bearden-Enright.
Bearden-Enright started working with CMA in 2005, when the organization travelled the CMA Awards to New York City for the first time. Bearden-Enright was at the Marriott Marquis on Times Square and worked closely with the CMA team on the post awards party. She would go on to produce the top-line gala as a member of the CMA staff in 2006.
During her time at CMA, Bearden-Enright was also responsible for event production during CMA Fest, the annual Triple Play Awards, the Songwriters Luncheon, the announcement of the Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, and numerous other events. In addition, she produced frequent CMA Songwriter Series events in the U.S. (New York City, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles) and internationally (London and Paris). The popular series was also featured as part of the “Front and Center” concert series airing on public television.
Bearden-Enright also received accolades for her attention to detail during quarterly Board of Directors meetings in Nashville and several other key locations in the U.S. including Miami, Napa Valley, New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Since joining CMA, she has watched the organization grow to new heights supporting the growth of Country Music around the globe with the 50th Anniversary of the CMA Awards, the creation of “CMA Country Christmas,” and the launch of the CMA Foundation.
Bearden-Enright was born and raised in Tennessee. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Middle Tennessee State University and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Florida. Before moving to Nashville, she lived and worked in New York City for 9 years focusing on meeting and event planning in the hotel world, specializing in the entertainment market. Bearden-Enright is also an accomplished actress and on-air voice talent.
