Big & Rich Form Label, Partner With Kobalt Label Services For Upcoming Album
By: Matt Bjorke
Long known for their genre-bending brand of Country Music (without prejudice), Big & Rich has announced today that they'll be releasing new music this year through their own label (Big & Rich Records) in partnership with Kobalt Label Services. Kobalt, which is also handling distribution of Martina McBride's next album and new label (Blackbird Records), will distribute the duo's first album outside of Warner Bros. Nashville, who released Hillbilly Jedi in 2012.
"2014 is a new milestone for us," Alphin and Rich say. "We're completely invigorated to be working with Kobalt and New Revolution and taking this new approach for this exciting album. The music is very fresh, and we're in a new creative groove which we hope our fans and new audiences will like."
The label partnership will also include New Revolution for radio promotion of the singles from the upcoming album, starting with lead single "Look At You."
