The answer is Austin music industry veteran, Nancy Coplin! Nancy has been working behind the scenes in Austin's music industry since the 80's. She ran the Austin Music Commission and brought the Music Industry Loan Program, the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue, the "Live Music Capital of the World" slogan, and so much more to fruition. She brought local music and musicians to the Austin airport creating work and exposure for local musicians. She's booked the music for the Armadillo Christmas Bazar for 34 years.
