– Broken Bow Records Music Group and Red Distribution announced a new joint venture Red Bow Records today with Joe Nichols among the first signings.
The new label also signed Rachel Farley.
"We could have done this ourselves; however, we have a longstanding, trusted friendship and professional relationship with RED Distribution and RED President Bob Morelli," says BBR Music Group President/CEO Benny Brown.
RED, a division of Sony, has distributed Broken Bow releases since 2002. The deal was renewed for five more years. Morelli said, "We are thrilled to be expanding our very successful relationship with Benny Brown and BBR Music Group."
Nichols' career to-date has produced four number 1 singles, 8 top 10 singles and 2.2 million in album sales. He previously was with Show Dog-Universal and Universal South.
Farley, 17, spent summer and fall opening for Broken Bow Records' superstar Jason Aldean on his "My Kinda Party Tour."
BBR Music Group includes Broken Bow Records, Stoney Creek Records, RED BOW Records, BBR Management and Magic Mustang Music Publishing.
BBR Music Group will take the lead in all creative and promotional endeavors for the new imprint.
