NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) – Veteran Nashville music agent Curt Motley has left his position at Paradigm to join the United Talent Agency team.
Motley was most recently co-head of music at Paradigm Talent Agency in Nashville. He began his career in 1990 at TKO Artist Management, then in 1995 came to Monterey Artists (acquired by Paradigm in 2005) from his own in-house booking agency, As The World Tours. In 2015, Motley was recognized on Billboard’s inaugural Nashville Power Players list.
Motley’s clients include Toby Keith, Jamey Johnson, Mac McAnally, Ashley Campbell, Kim Campbell, Krystal Keith, JT Hodges, Ned LeDoux, Waterloo Revival, Western Underground, Erik Dylan, Walker McGuire, Chris Bandi, and Scotty Emerick.
“I really got to know UTA and Lance Roberts when Chris Janson was added to Toby Keith’s summer tour dates last year,” said Motley. “UTA is building something special in music, and I’m excited at the many new opportunities.”
“Curt Motley has been a veritable force in the music business for more than 25 years,” said UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer. “We welcome him to UTA Music and we are excited about his many contributions as we expand our team.”
Also making the jump to UTA Music is Paradigm agent Brendan Rich. Rich's clients include Chris Bandi and Walker McGuire. – Staff Writers
