On the heels of Universal Music Group Nashville co-chairman James Stroud's recent departure, four more staff members have exited, including three from the A&R department.

No longer with the label group are VP of A&R Allison Jones, manager of A&R Doug Rich, A&R coordinator Jim Williams and executive assistant Tammy Luker.

According to a Universal Music Group spokesman, the positions will be filled shortly. In addition, the UMGN staff will grow over the next few months and announcements are forthcoming, according to the spokesman.
