ALL ACCESS extends sympathies to family and friends of longtime promo vet CHUCK THAGARD, who passed away TODAY (7/31) after a long battle with cancer. He was 74.
Most recently a member of the QUARTERBACK RECORDS staff, THAGARD spent 50 years promoting music and artists from all genres. He helped to launch NASHVILLE's BNA RECORDS in 1991, later moving to WARNER BROS. A posting on CHUCK’s FACEBOOK page by his son GRAYSON outlines more details on his long and successful career in promotion.
Details on services are pending; the family requests that in lieu of flowers, CHUCK’s friends consider adding to the many donations he has made to ST. JUDE CHILDREN’s RESEARCH HOSPITAL by dedicating a gift on his behalf here.
