In keeping with the information outlet, PR agency TheGreenRoom has dropped Aldean as a consumer. The corporate’s co-owner Tyne Parrish launched a press release to the magazine in regards to the agency’s resolution, making an attempt to place a optimistic spin on the break:
“Music has at all times been and stays TheGreenRoom’s core focus, so we needed to make the tough resolution after 17 years to step away from representing Jason. We aren’t one of the best folks for the gig anymore, however will at all times be large followers of his music — he is without doubt one of the best reside entertainers in nation music.”
It’s a hell of a coincidence to suppose they might have dropped Aldean simply fully out of the blue after working collectively for practically 20 years until it have been associated to Brittany’s sitch. Ya know?? So it’s fascinating to see Parrish doesn’t handle the controversy at all in that assertion.
