Jo Dee Messina Splits Management

Stuart Dill worked with artist for seven years.

Curb Records artist Jo Dee Messina has parted ways with Stuart Dill of Nashville-based Refugee Management, who has guided her career for seven years. The split is described as amicable.

"I don't think anyone, unless you're an artist or a manager, has an inkling of how intense these relationships can be," Dill tells Billboard.biz. "There's a time when it's healthy to disengage without losing any admiration for each other at all. She wanted a fresh start, and I'm excited about that for her."

Dill continues to manage Rodney Crowell; he is also co-managing the Notorious Cherry Bombs project with Larry Fitzgerald and Terry Elam.

Messina has not announced new management.
