NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) Over two dozen artists are no longer listed as clients on the website for embattled publicist Kirt Webster’s former company.
It was announced Wednesday he stepped down from his company, Webster Public Relations, after a former aspiring country star accused him of sexual misconduct and threatening behavior in a public Facebook post last Friday.
The news hit the country music scene with force as Webster not only stepped away from his career but his business partner took over their company, which is now operating under a new name Westby Public Relations.
Since Wednesday’s announcement, News 2 learned at least 25 artists, including major names in the country scene, were removed from the website’s roster.

Dolly Parton spoke about the situation on Twitter, saying, worked with Kirt Webster for many years and he has done a wonderful job. I am hoping that the accusations are not true. police also confirmed Thursday a sex crimes detective spoke with the alleged victim via phone, as he lives out of state. Spokesman Don Aaron told News 2 the allegations cannot be acted upon due to the number of years that have lapsed. Metro will not investigate further but encourages others to report information if they have any.
