NASHVILLE labels have been making some moves lately. The first that we can tell you about is at UNIVERSAL SOUTH, where VP/Promo MICHAEL POWERS has tapped promotions vet RICK HUGHES for the SOUTHWEST. HUGHES, who spent almost 14 years at SONY/NASHVILLE, replaces VAN HAZE. Where's VAN going? We'll be able to tell you shortly.
ALL ACCESS hears that HAZE gave his resignation on FRIDAY and an hour later POWERS was interviewing HUGHES at his office away from the office, the TIN ROOF. According to our sources POWERS wrote the offer on a cocktail napkin and the deal was inked.
