Stuart To Join Universal South Roster
|This appeared on BillboardRadioMonitor.com - February 16, 2005|
Country music icon, historian and artist Marty Stuart is in the process of signing with Universal South Records in a project development role that may include his own imprint, BillboardRadioMonitor.com has learned. Some of the first projects he is expected to develop will be his own works.
Stuart, a member of the Grand Ole Opry, was most recently signed to Columbia Records, where he did two tours of duty interrupted by a long stint at MCA Nashville in the 90s.
Among the non-mainstream projects Stuart is developing are a themed record about the Sioux tribe and a gospel CD.
Stuart is managed by Marc Dottore, who recently joined the company to head its new management division, Universal South Artists.
