NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — CAA’s Nashville office has been hit with several more high profiles defections, following the surprise departure earlier this week of former CAA co-head Scott Clayton, who left the agency to sign with rival WME.
According to a report in Billboard, veteran agent and festival co-head Matt Morgan also left CAA to join WME’s Nashville office, further bolstering WME’s rock division, which is now being overseen by Clayton. While at CAA, Morgan represented a roster that included Hot Chelle Rae, Zac Brown Band, and Nic Cowan among others.
Also leaving the CAA fold was agent Buster Phillips, but it was unclear if Phillips was also making the jump to WME, Billboard said.
Phillips roster at CAA included Dashboard Confessional, Gov’t Mule, Iron & Wine and the Wallflowers.
