Club Owner: Oliver Anthony's Team Agreed to Ticket Price

The owner of Cotton Eyed Joe, the music venue in Knoxville, Tenn., has accused country singer Oliver Anthony of breaking a verbal agreement for a scheduled show. The owner, Chuck Ward, claims that Anthony and his team had agreed to a compensation of $120,000 plus accommodation, but later expressed concern about the prices. Ward also criticized Anthony for taking to social media before informing the venue management about the cancellation, and stated that a compromise could have been reached if handled professionally.
