BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT VP/Promotion RICK BAUMGARTNER has told ALL ACCESS that he will be stepping down from the label, effective tomorrow (7/31). RICK has been battling glaucoma, will be undergoing surgery on AUGUST 8th.
BAUMGARTNER told ALL ACCESS, "I just want to thank everyone for an amazing 24 years, and say that this is not the end, but this break will give me time to step back and re-assess and concentrate on my health for a bit. This certainly does not mean that I am retiring."
RICK joined BLACK RIVER in 2008 and has held posts during his career at DOLLY PARTON MANAGEMENT, BROKEN BOW RECORDS, EQUITY MUSIC GROUP, WARNER BROS, ATLANTIC and DECCA.
All of us at ALL ACCESS send our best wishes to RICK for a speedy and healthy recovery.
