Arista Records Methodically Phasing Out

Arista Records’ country acts and their managers reportedly have been meeting with designated RCA staffers to smooth their transition when RCA takes over the remains of the Arista roster. Publicists for Arista say they know of no such meetings. The phasing out of Arista/Nashville is expected to be complete when Tim DuBois leaves the label’s presidency at the end of June to establish a record label for Gaylord Entertainment.
