Promotion vet let go April 12.

Bill Macky, the VP of national promotion at Epic Records in Nashville, was let go April 12.

Macky was upped to that position at Epic in December, 2004 when Sony Music Nashville president John Grady split the upper management of the Epic and Columbia promotion teams into distinct entities. Prior to that, he was the VP of national promotion for both labels under senior VP of promotion Larry Pareigis, who now helms Columbia's promotion efforts. Before Sony, Macky held the national promotion post at MCA Nashville.

A replacement is believed to have been selected, but not yet announced.

Epic's roster includes Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert, Patty Loveless, Rodney Crowell, Jon Randall and newcomers Jace Everett and Susan Haynes.
