The Grammy-winning country music producer arrested for an attack on a woman in a parking lot (as alleged in the formal complaint) recently saw all charges dropped by a Nashville judge.
Successful music man Tony Brown who has worked with such legendary artists like George Strait, Vince Gill, Brooks & Dunn, Shooter Jennings, and many more – was accused early this year of a violent and brutal attack on a woman he knew.
According to The Tennessean, the warrant states that Brown slapped a woman after an argument and then shoved her to the ground after grabbing her by the face. The officer then describes that she struck her head on the ground from the forceful nature of his actions and Brown then “got on top of the victim and was pulling her hair” and dragged her down a hallway.
While that case is still pending, the woman’s most recent complaint that he violated a protective order was dropped by Judge Angelita Blackshear Dalton on Monday after hearing from two witnesses – one of whom was the woman holding the protective order.
In the article from The Tennessean, the woman’s relationship to Brown is only described as “a woman known to Brown” and never explained. We are uncertain if their relationship was personal or professional in nature.
Brown was formerly the president of MCA Nashville and co-founder of Universal South Records and has been known as one of the best producers of the ’90s, sending albums from Reba McEntire, Cyndi Lauper, George Strait, and Vince Gill to the top of the charts.
