If today there are still fewer women calling the shots in the entertainment industry than men, imagine the environment Louise Scruggs worked in during the 1950s. In honor of Scruggs — who passed in 2006 and was a pioneering manager of her husband Earl’s career — the Louise Scruggs Memorial Forum honors women who’ve accomplished significant things in the business. Bonnie Garner is this year’s interview subject. Her career started well outside Nashville. Forty years ago, she was booking Ike and Tina Turner and The Grateful Dead onto Hugh Heffner’s Playboy After Dark TV show in L.A. and Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix onto the Dick Cavett Show in New York, before establishing Columbia and Epic’s first pop division in Nashville with John Hiatt and Dan Fogelberg on the roster. Garner eventually became CBS’s VP of A&R — no small feat — and went on to manage the outlaw supergroup The Highwaymen and a heap of others.
