– The Raybaw label, which was founded by the MuzikMafia, was folded into Warner.
Raybaw consisted of Cowboy Troy, James Otto and John Anderson. Cowboy Troy, who released, "Black in the Saddle" last year, shifted over to Warner as did Otto. He will release "Sunset Man" April 8 as a joint release with Raybaw and Warner. That was decided because printing of the CD already had started.
Anderson, who released "Easy Money," last year was dropped by Warner.
No reason was given by Warner for the move.
MuzikMafia is the music collective formed by Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich, Jon Nicholson and Cory Gierman. The Raybaw albums, which also included Cowboy Troy's debut, "Loco Motion," was distributed by Warner. Big & Rich always released their albums through Warner.
