Nashville’s BBR Music Group and BMG executives gather with Kid Rock and members of his team in celebration of their new relationship to release the multi-platinum rock icons’ new music. Upcoming new music will be released under the artist’s Top Dog Records in conjunction with BBR Music Group in Nashville and BMG in LA.
Founded in 1997, BBR Music Group quickly grew from a fledgling independent label into one of the largest independent Country label groups in the U.S. with Broken Bow Records, Stoney Creek Records, Red Bow Records and Wheelhouse Records under its group umbrella. Broken Bow Records, BBR Music Group’s original imprint, features a roster of talented artists including the RIAA’s Number One digital selling male Country artist of all time and 2016 ACM Entertainer of the Year Jason Aldean and chart-toppers Dustin Lynch and Chase Rice. Stoney Creek Records boasts a roster which includes chart-toppers Randy Houser and Parmalee, CMT’s Next Women of Country Lindsay Ell and newcomer Adam Craig. Red Bow Records’ artist roster includes four-time Grammy nominee Joe Nichols, hit-maker Craig Campbell and hot Country newcomers Chase Bryant and Brooke Eden. Wheelhouse Records is BBR Music Group’s newest imprint, anchored by multi-media superstar Trace Adkins, chart-toppers Granger Smith and Kristian Bush, as well as buzz acts Runaway June and Walker McGuire.
In January 2017, BBR Music Group was acquired by BMG, the new model music company founded by Bertelsmann in 2008. BMG’s 14 offices across 12 core music markets now represent over 2.5m songs and recordings, including the catalogues of Chrysalis, Bug, Virgin, Mute, Sanctuary, Primary Wave and Talpa Music, as well as literally thousands of artists and songwriters attracted by its fresh approach.
