Cara Cunningham joined NMPA in the winter of 2023 as Manager, External Affairs. In this role she supports NMPA’s public relations, events and web presence.

Prior to joining NMPA, she worked in copyright and licensing for Integrity Music, an independent record label and music publisher based in Nashville. During her time at Integrity she administered global licensing efforts for a catalog of over 50,000 compositions and sound recordings, while also serving as a key contact on copyright matters on behalf of their roster of songwriters.

Much of her passion for music advocacy stems from being raised in the heart of Austin, Texas – the Live Music Capitol of the World.
