This certainly says that the "record" business ain't what it used to be.
Once upon a time artists like Chet Atkins and Jim Reeves remained with Nipper until they died.
But, of course, that was a different time in so many ways.
Tim Dubois is gone. Joe Galante is gone. Jackson, the first artist signed to Arista Nashville when the label was founded in 1989, is gone now too.
Alan sold more than 50 million albums for Arista in his 22 years with the imprint.
Most of us, no doubt, lack adequate words to express how sad all of this makes us feel.
Hopefully, Alan is, as usual, writing the absolutely perfect song lyric and melody right now to say it best for us.
I can't wait to hear it.
