Nick Hunter
DOB Unknown – December 15, 2010

Nick Hunter was a respected music industry veteran who worked in radio promotion and sales. Over the course of a career that spanned some 40 years, he worked for Giant, Atlantic, and Warner Bros. Records, among others.  In 1999, he founded his own label, Audium Records.  Over the years, Hunter was directly involved with the successes of such artists as Willie Nelson, Randy Travis, and Johnny Paycheck who he is credited for reviving his career and probably his life in the early ’70s.  In later years, Hunter was perhaps better known as “Nick the Stick” for his two decades as a popular radio sports commentator in Nashville.   Nick Hunter, 67, passed away on December 15, 2010 after a long struggle with cancer.
