Nashville Dirt – Rumors Heard Around Nashville
By Phil Winslade

There are always rumors around Nashville and we hear new ones every day. Here is a list of some of the hottest rumors we’ve heard around town from various sources. We cannot speak to the validity of each of these rumors, but these are some of the whispers we’ve heard.

* Rumor on the street is that a talent agent who left (see: was fired) his job has gone completely off the deep end and has made threats to his former cohorts. These threats have been taken so seriously that there is now an increased security presence at the agency as well as increased personal security for some of the threatened agents.

* 10% rumor mill – we’re hearing that the Bobby Roberts Company is going to be absorbed by The Agency Group. The Agency Group is a large agency with a very small presence in Nashville. Adding Bobby Roberts roster, which includes Merle Haggard, John Michael Montgomery, and any county music singer named Darryl (BRC reps both Darryl Worley and Daryle Singletary) should help. The Bobby Roberts Company has a reputation for being a company the represents “heritage acts” but has recently signed some great young talent such as Chris Janson, Blackjack Billy and Morgan Fraizer. We like this move for both agencies.
