UTA signs a handful of country music artists
NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) – Two of Henry Paul’s southern rock projects, legendary band The Outlaws and hitmakers Blackhawk have signed exclusive booking agreements with United Talent Agency.
UTA will represent both groups in all areas, including live concert bookings, literary deals, film and television.
âWe are delighted to be working with UTA,â says Henry Paul, founding member of both groups. “It’s the dawn of getting back on the road for BlackHawk and The Outlaws, and going back to what we’ve loved to do for so many years.”
“The Outlaws are a pillar in the history and fabric of southern rock music today,” added UTA’s Alec Vidmar, Greg Janese and Lance Roberts in a joint statement. âBlackHawk produced some of the most iconic songs in ’90s country music with distinct three-part harmonies. It’s not every day that we have the opportunity to work with such genre-defying artists. We are thrilled to be working with the two iconic bands to bring their music to crowds around the world. “
BlackHawk and The Outlaws are managed by Charlie Brusco and Darren Hagen at the Atlanta Red Light Management office.
âI’ve been associated with Henry Paul since we started with the Outlaws in 1973,â said Brusco. “He continues to move fans with his music and I am proud to carry on this great legacy.”
UTA also announced the signing of rising country music star Brittney Spencer.
Spencer is set to hit the road this summer as the opening act for Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, including their short residency at the Ryman Auditorium in October.
âWe are incredibly honored to represent such an incredibly talented artist like Brittney,â said Jeffrey Hasson, UTA agent. âBrittney’s ability to tackle deep and relevant topics with such power and vocal control is inspiring. It was clear to us from the first meeting that Brittney had such an important voice going forward, and we are honored to help share it with the world in all areas of UTA.
âI am delighted to be associated with UTA! Exclaims Spencer. âI am confident this partnership will help me find creative and innovative ways to build my live show and connect with many music lovers along the way. Live shows are finally back and I feel more ready than ever with this amazing new addition to my team. “
