The SAG-AFTRA Nashville Local remembers the life of multi-faceted entertainer Lari White, who died Jan. 23 after a short battle with cancer. She was 52.

As a Grammy-winning songwriter, White’s songs were recorded by artists like Tammy Wynette, Sarah Buxton and Pat Green. Besides being a country music producer and singing with artists like Rodney Crowell, White also was an accomplished artist in her own right — boasting a string of hits in the ‘90s — as well as acting on Broadway and in movies like Castaway with Tom Hanks.

You know we try to always be there for you as a union. But that hasn’t always meant people know where we are as an office. So, the Nashville Local was thrilled when our new signs went up last September, and what a process it was.
