Brad Paisley and Chris Young are the first clients.
Rob Beckham has officially resurfaced after leaving WME Nashville in October, revealing Monday (May 6) he's partnering with music manager Bill Simmons to launch The AMG, short for Artist Management Group.
The announcement came shortly after news broke that Nashville management firm Fitzgerald Hartley was closing its doors after 42 years. Simmons was a partner in Fitzgerald Hartley, while Beckham was a partner and co-head at WME Nashville until October 2018, when agency reps confirmed that Beckham had left the company.
No explanation was given at the time and the sudden resignation was shrouded in mystery, with many Music City professionals wondering why he left one of country music's powerful agencies, where Beckham's clients included Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire and Chris Young.
