Suzanne Strickland is the owner and CEO of Nashville-based independent music publishing and artist development company, RareSpark Media Group, Inc. A lifelong musician and entrepreneur, Strickland is the former COO of A&M Recovery Services, Inc., a joint business venture with her husband and brother-in-law that provided property management and maintenance services in seven states throughout the Southeast. The success of that business paved the way for Strickland to return to her first love – music - and she launched RareSpark Media Group with Vice-President / General Manager, Scot Sherrod, in April 2012. In the six years since, the boutique entertainment company has represented a total of 11 songwriters and artists, and the company is currently home to six multi-talented songwriters, producers, and artists whose songs have been featured on major motion picture soundtracks and national television shows and recorded by country music superstars including Blake Shelton, Sara Evans, and Lauren Alaina, among others. RareSpark also recently celebrated the release of artist/writer Walker Hayes’ Monument Records album, boom., as well as its first RIAA Platinum and Top 10 country radio single with Hayes’ 2018 smash hit, “You Broke Up With Me,” which earned the company its first BMI Award in 2018.
