Scott Whitehead, business manager for Nashville-based GrassRoots Promotion and FanTheJam.com, passed away suddenly on March 12.
Whitehead and GrassRoots’ Managing Partner/co-owner Nancy Tunick recently celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary. Whitehead was also a musician, songwriter (formerly signed to Acuff-Rose), producer, manager, and a former member of the country duo Hometown News, which scored two charting singles, “Minivan” and “Wheels,” on VFR Records in 2002. Prior to his music career, Whitehead served for eight years in the U.S. Navy flying the F/A-18 Hornet, including missions over Iraq. He is a graduate of the Naval Fighter Weapons School (Top Gun).
In addition to Tunick, survivors include the couple’s two teenage children, an adult son from a previous marriage, three grandchildren and Whitehead’s parents. No immediate funeral services are planned. The family hopes to host a celebration of his life in the summer or fall.
