About Me

Hi, I’m Erin Crawford. I’m excited to be running for Williamson County Commissioner representing my friends and neighbors in District 12. We all have a story, and I want you to know mine before I ask for your vote.

Family Life

I grew up in Troy, Michigan with my parents, now retired, and my younger sister who is a public school administrator in the district we attended as children. Having always been interested in human behavior, I graduated from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor with a degree in Biopsychology & Cognitive Sciences.

Upon graduation, I moved to Los Angeles with my high school sweetheart so that he could pursue his dream of becoming a musician. We married and had two truly amazing boys. Even though we were divorced by the time my company asked me to lead their music business unit and relocate to Nashville, my ex-husband still moved to the area so that we could continue to co-parent. In 2015, I researched, visited, and ultimately chose beautiful and welcoming Williamson County to buy a home and raise my boys – and like many families, mainly because of these excellent public schools.

After seven single years, I found my wonderful husband right here in Williamson County. Through our marriage, I have been blessed with two lovely bonus daughters. Our greatest gift was his youngest daughter officiating our wedding ceremony. Now that his girls are grown, we live in Ladd Park with my boys and a dog.

My blended family is the center of my universe and creating a happy, prosperous life for us in this thriving community has been a dream come true.

A Love for Community

I have a long history of supporting organizations that empower people in my communities, including:

  • tnAchieves, Mentor (2020-present)
  • Women in Music, Advisory Board Member (2016-2019)
  • Nashville Entrepreneur Center, Project Music Advisor (2017-2018)
  • YWCA Nashville, Fulcrum Society, Wine, Women & Shoes Ticket Sales Committee Chair (2017)
  • Step Up Women’s Network, Luminary Circle, Inspiration Awards Host Committee (2013-2016)
  • Entertainment AIDS Alliance, Board of Directors, Vice President (2009)

In addition, I have served our local democracy as a Williamson County Poll Worker and WCDP Poll Watcher.

As a resident of Williamson County, it’s vital to me that I be an engaged and active citizen who uplifts all who live here.

Career Success

After twenty years at Nielsen, a global leader in measuring human behavior, I now work on Music Row at Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) as Executive Director of Distribution & Administration Services. I am proud to be known as a strategic, persistent and compassionate business leader, and to have been named to Nashville Business Journal’s Women in Music City honoree list in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
