NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) Nashville publicist Kirt Webster, who once represented practically every major performer to come out of Music City, has launched a website and promises to have some big news regarding the return.
Webster abruptly closed his firm Webster PR in November 2017 after accusations by singer Austin Rick, a former client of Webster who accused the PR rep of drugging and assaulting him in Webster’s home. Webster said the relationship was consensual. The accusation was followed by the Tennessean publishing accounts of inappropriate behavior by some of Webster’s former employees and interns. There were more than 20 allegations of abuse and sexual misconduct overall.
There is not much information beyond the launch of www.kirtwebster.com, which lists Webster’s extensive professional history on its front page plus a lengthy bio that ends with: With the advent of news from the fall of 2017, you might ask. “What’s next for Kirt Webster?” Be assured it will be visionary, unexpected, larger than life, and filled with newsworthy answers to that very question.
CelebrityAccess has had some contact with Webster but awaits a formal response regarding the website. Meanwhile, he told the Tennessean, “Contrary to speculation, I have never gone anywhere. I am alive and still living in Nashville, Tennessee. I am blessed to have many friends in the music business, many whom have opened their hearts and businesses to me.
“It’s been an interesting 15 months. … Always remember, haters will hate no matter what the reality is. I am living life to its fullest and helping a lot of people along the way.”
Webster’s clients have included everyone from Dolly Parton and Merle Haggard to Johnny Cash and George Jones.
