The new U.S. Secretary of Commerce will travel to Nashville this week to meet with business leaders, primarily in music publishing. Since being sworn in the last week of June, Penny Pritzker has been on a listening tour that’s included stops in Colorado, Connecticut and upstate New York.

Pritzker’s Nashville trip will take her to Loud Recording Studios to meet with heads of the Recording Industry Association of America and Sony Music. The Commerce Secretary also plans to see the Nashville Entrepreneur Center. The business incubator was the recipient of a Department of Commerce grant worth $2.5 million.
