UMPG Nashville has promoted Missy Roberts to VP, A&R. The exec will continue reporting to Troy Tomlinson, Chairman/CEO of the Nashville division. 

Roberts, who most recently served as Senior Director, A&R, currently reps songwriters including Ingrid Andress, Justin Ebach, Paul DiGiovanni, Brandi Carlile, Derrick Southerland, Cole Taylor, Caitlyn Smith, Shane Minor, Jamie Paulin and Jeff Middleton.

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Missy and watching her grow as a leader over a number of years. Her thoughtful approach when signing songwriters and setting up collaborations make her an absolutely excellent example of what A&R should look like. Missy’s voice on our team and within the Music Row community position her well for this leadership role,” said Tomlinson.

Roberts adds, “Universal Music Publishing is home to the absolute best-in-class creators, leadership and culture. Everything we do is designed to make sure songwriters are always first. None of us succeed or grow without belief. Universal Music’s belief in me is inspiring and humbling at the same time, and I want thank Troy for this opportunity.”

Prior to joining UMPG in 2012, Roberts held A&R roles at Sony Music Nashville, Disney Music Publishing Nashville, Stage Three Music and EMI Music Publishing. An 18-year industry vet, she was also recognized as a Rising Women on the Row in 2020.
