United Talent Agency has a double dose of good news to announce thanks to exclusive booking deals signed with multi-platinum country act BlackHawk and Southern rock staple The Outlaws.

UTA will represent both bands worldwide in all areas including concert bookings, literary deals, film and television. 

“We’re thrilled to be working with UTA,” Henry Paul, a founding member of both bands, said in a statement. “This is the dawning of the return to the road for BlackHawk, and The Outlaws, and getting back to what we have loved to do for so many years.”

UTA’s Alec Vidmar, Greg Janese and Lance Roberts added in a joint statement, “The Outlaws are a pillar in the history and the fabric of southern rock music today. BlackHawk produced some of the most iconic songs of ’90s country music with distinctive three-part harmonies. It is not every day we have the opportunity to work with such genre-defying acts. We are over the moon to work with both iconic groups to bring their music to crowds everywhere.”

In November the duo released the two-disc greatest hits album Just About Right: Live From Atlanta, which was recorded acoustically from Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta. 

The Outlaws will be back on stage Aug. 7 with a show at The Barn at Paint Fork in Barnardsville, N.C., followed by an appearance at Volunteer Jam XXI at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. 
The band’s latest studio album, Dixie Highway, was released last year.  
Boxoffice reports submitted to Pollstar for The Outlaws include two shows at the Bilheimer Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, Fla., Dec. 20-21, 2019, that sold 1,076 tickets and grossed $89,110. 
Reports for BlawkHawk include a co-headline show with The Marshall Tucker Band at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Fla., on April 23, 2021, that sold 857 tickets and grossed $61,381.

Both The Outlaws and BlackHawk are managed by Charlie Brusco and Darren Hagen of Red Light Management.

“I have been associated with Henry Paul since our early days of the Outlaws in 1973,” Brusco said in a statement. “He continues to move fans with his music and I am proud to continue the great heritage.”
