Meet Evelyn Minisode
4:54
Evelyn Shriver will say her story is not as colorful as her co-host Susan’s, but we beg to differ. She may not have spent time in prison, but at 17 she left home for New York City, and got her first job working with mega movie stars like Cary Grant, Bette Davis, and Joan Crawford. Her introduction into the music industry was with Cher and Diana Ross, and she was part of the team that launched People Magazine, MTV and Entertainment Tonight. See what we mean….that’s pretty colorful. “Shady Ladies of Music City” will delve into the life Susan and Evelyn shared running Asylum Records and working with clients like Randy Travis, George Jones and Willie Nelson, but first, take some time to get to know the other half of your hosting duo, Evelyn Shriver.

Meet Susan Minisode
3:42
Susan Nadler will tell you her life got a whole lot more fun when she met her co-host Evelyn Shriver in 1988, but truth be told she had already lived a lot of life. Before she even started her legendary career in the music industry, she had already lived in three different countries, evaded a 27 year sentence in a Mexican prison for smuggling hash, successfully run a popcorn stand out of Key West, and happened to find her way into PR via the Benson and Hedges Blues Tour. “Shady Ladies of Music City” will delve into the life Susan and Evelyn shared running Asylum Records and working with clients like Randy Travis, George Jones and Willie Nelson, but first, take some time to get to know one half of your hosting duo, Susan Nadler.
