UTA Inks With BlackHawk, The Outlaws
Country music group BlackHawk and southern rock band The Outlaws have signed exclusive booking deals with United Talent Agency. UTA will represent both bands worldwide in all areas — live concert bookings, literary deals, film, television and more.
“We’re thrilled to be working with UTA,” says Henry Paul, a founding member of both bands. “This is the dawning of the return to the road for BlackHawk and The Outlaws, and getting back to what we have loved to do for so many years.”
“The Outlaws are a pillar in the history and the fabric of southern rock music today,” notes UTA’s Alec Vidmar, Greg Janese, and Lance Roberts in a joint statement. “BlackHawk produced some of the most iconic songs of ’90s country music with distinctive three-part harmonies. It is not every day we have the opportunity to work with such genre-defying acts. We are over the moon to work with both iconic groups to bring their music to crowds everywhere.”
BlackHawk and The Outlaws are managed by Charlie Brusco and Darren Hagen in the Atlanta Red Light Management office.
