The Andrea Roberts Agency was established in 2004 when Andrea identified the need and fulfilled the desire of spreading the music that has been so dear to her throughout her life. By offering some of bluegrass and acoustic music’s finest talent an outlet to share their gift with audiences across the country, as well as working with promoters to create an event that pleases their crowd and inspires audiences to return again, Andrea works to be a liaison between the music and its listeners.
ARA is the culmination of Andrea’s years of experience in varied facets of the industry, which provides her with a well-informed and understanding perspective that only someone with practical knowledge can possess. As a professional touring artist, Andrea performed with artists such as Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, Special Consensus, Jim & Jesse McReynolds, Ralph Stanley, Tim Graves and Cherokee, New Tradition, and most notably, Petticoat Junction. She understands booking, traveling, recording, project coordination, airplay, sales, and marketing. As Petticoat Junction’s bandleader, she was responsible for all aspects of keeping a band on the road for eight years.
Andrea is a proud alumnus of Leadership Bluegrass, a program sponsored by the International Bluegrass Music Association. As well as being a long-time supporter of the organization, she was also nominated for the IBMA Board of Directors in 2004. Andrea has witnessed phenomenal growth within IBMA and the genre as a whole and believes that one of the most vital keys in strengthening the music is keeping artists on the road and in front of audiences.
Originally from Windfall, Indiana, Andrea relocated to Nashville in 1987. She now lives with her husband, Danny, and daughter, Jaelee, just outside the city in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
