    REBA BECOMES INAUGURAL SIGNING ON NASH ICON MUSIC LABEL

    October 21, 2014 0 Comments

    NASH ICON MUSIC proudly bestows another title to the reigning “Queen of Country,” announcing REBA as the inaugural signing on the innovative new joint venture label between Big Machine and Cumulus. This morning (10/21), she joined America’s Morning Show host BLAIR GARNER to share the news about her first new music in over five years. Leading up to the announcement, a Reba song was played every half hour to highlight her career and gear up for the new chapter. Co-host TERRI CLARK performed “Fancy” for Reba-oke, as part of co-host CHUCK WICKS’ “5 Seconds” trivia game before a Reba cake was presented in front of the live audience. Listen to the full interview here.

    “I am so excited to be the first artist to sign up with this new joint venture. We’ve been in the studio having a blast recording new songs and I can’t wait for my fans to hear them. Thanks to Scott Borchetta, John Dickey and everyone at Cumulus for letting me be a part of these new and exciting times,” said REBA.

    The Oklahoma native is back in the studio with long-time producer Tony Brown and is collaborating for the first time with James Stroud, blending their unique approaches and multi-platinum career success.

    “As Reba and I get to enter into another phase of our business relationship that dates back to 1991, I am again reminded of the power of all things Reba. Her presence, her vocal prowess, her song selection, her passion… it’s unequaled in her multi-decade career and we will again blaze new trails together,” said Big Machine Label Group President & CEO SCOTT BORCHETTA. “I can’t think of a more important artist or voice to crown as our first Icon artist as there are none truer to the definition.”

    "By the numbers Reba defines what it is to be an Icon — 56 million albums sold, 35 #1 singles, #1 female country touring artist of all time and room full of CMA, ACM and Grammy awards. Reba is Nashville. Nash Icon is thrilled to have Reba as our first artist on this exciting new label,” added JOHN DICKEY, Executive Vice President of Content and Programming for Cumulus.

    In May, Big Machine and Cumulus rolled out a joint venture under the Nash Icon brand with the creation of a record label, Nash Icon Music. Nash Icon will produce new music and live events from Nashville’s most prolific artists over the last 25 years. General Manager JIM WEATHERSON will spearhead the strategic partnership between the two music, entertainment and media powerhouses. Separate from this joint venture between Cumulus and Big Machine for the Nash Icon Music record label and live events business, Cumulus independently operates 16 (soon to be more) Nash Icon radio stations and will soon distribute Nash Icon content to stations nationwide through its wholly owned distribution service Westwood One.

    As a multi-media entertainment mogul, Reba has become a household name with a successful career that spans music, television, theater and retail industries. She has achieved a rare pinnacle with 35 #1 singles, over 56 million albums sold worldwide and a total of over 9 million tickets in touring to become one of the most successful female recording artists in history. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame inductee has won 15 American Music Awards, 13 ACM Awards, nine People’s Choice Awards, seven CMA Awards, two GRAMMY Awards and an ACM Career Achievement Honor. Additionally, Reba has the distinction of being one of only four entertainers in history to receive the National Artistic Achievement Award from the U.S. Congress.

    March 30, 2012 0 Comments

    General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s star-studded roster of Country music artists are teaming up with Feeding America to Outnumber Hunger in a national initiative that helps fight hunger in local communities. Outnumber Hunger will help Feeding America secure up to 15.6 million meals for local food banks to assist the one in six Americans who struggles with hunger.

    According to the USDA, an estimated 49 million Americans struggle with hunger, making the issue a growing reality in every community. By simply entering codes at OutnumberHunger.com, Americans can make a difference in their local communities at a time when it matters most.

    “Hunger is a year-round issue but it can be especially critical in the spring, so Feeding America food banks need help now,” said Vicki B. Escarra, President and CEO, Feeding America. “The combined reach that General Mills and Big Machine Label Group’s artists bring to the hunger crisis will help provide critical resources at this key time.”

    This powerful group of partners is using its collective voice to rally Americans for the cause. Codes will appear on millions of specially-marked packages of General Mills products to give people the chance to help Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of their local food banks.

    “As a leading food company, no cause is more important to us than the hunger issue,” said Cheryl Welch, Director, Outnumber Hunger at General Mills. “We’re thrilled to give people the chance to make a difference in their own communities through Outnumber Hunger.”

    Specially-marked packages of General Mills products will feature an Outnumber Hunger code, as well as favorite Big Machine Label Group artists like Rascal Flatts. More than 10 General Mills brands, including Betty Crocker, Green Giant, Totino’s and Cheerios, will participate. Entering the code at OutnumberHunger.com helps Feeding America secure five meals on behalf of a local food bank. Participants enter their ZIP codes, and meals will stay in or near the area.

    Big Machine Label Group artists also will offer select special codes on Facebook and Twitter that help Feeding America secure five meals for local food banks. Big Machine Label Group artists who are encouraging participation include Multi-Platinum-selling superstar artists Rascal Flatts, Reba, Martina McBride, and The Band Perry as well as established chart-topping acts Eli Young Band, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert and newcomers Sunny Sweeney, Edens Edge, Ella Mae Bowen and Thomas Rhett.

    “It takes a Big Machine to Outnumber Hunger, and we have an opportunity to make a huge difference in local communities,” said Scott Borchetta, President and CEO, of Big Machine Label Group. “That’s why we’re thrilled to come together with our artists, General Mills and Feeding America to help the hunger issue in a significant way. Together we can Outnumber Hunger.”

    Additionally, the Outnumber Hunger partners have created an educational video with Rascal Flatts that highlights the issue of hunger and shows how anyone can get involved to help Feeding America. It will air during a Rascal Flatts theater event in New York City and in over 600 movie theaters across the country on the night of April 5. Tickets to the movie theater concert event can be purchased online at RascalFlatts.com/Changed

    “Our fans have always been strong supporters of us and our families,” said Joe Don Rooney, Rascal Flatts. “By being involved in Outnumber Hunger, we hope to provide that same support for those who may struggle with hunger. We’re grateful to have the chance to spread awareness of this important cause.”

    General Mills will donate $0.65 to Feeding America—enough to help secure 5 meals on behalf of local food banks—for every code entered. To make a difference in your local community with Outnumber Hunger, visit www.OutnumberHunger.com.

    Big Night for BMLG at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards

    February 13, 2012 0 Comments

    Though last night's GRAMMY Awards ceremony was undoubtedly cloaked in somber reverence for the recently passed vocal legend Whitney Houston, the evening still served as one of the year's best celebrations of music and its creators. That said, it was a big night for the Big Machine.

    Before the show even began, BMR artist Taylor Swift collected two GRAMMYs-- "Best Country Song" and "Best Country Solo Performance"-- for "Mean," off 2010's blockbuster hit Speak Now. In Taylor's own words, "This one really means a lot to me because this is for a song called 'Mean' that I wrote," she said in her acceptance speech. "There's really no feeling quite like writing a song about someone who's really mean to you, and someone who completely hates you and makes your life miserable -- and then winning a Grammy for it." Congratulations, Taylor!

    Later in the evening, Reba looked stunning as she introduced a performance by Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson. Earlier today, Reba commented on the importance of this year's ceremony, posting on her Facebook page, "I think we were all a little more aware that we could be gone in an instant and to take advantage of the time we all have together."

    In another special introduction/performer pairing, Nashville duo The Civil Wars performed a snippet of their song "Barton Hollow" (which won a GRAMMY earlier in the evening) before introducing Taylor Swift's theatrical, passionate performance of "Mean." Taylor and the Civil Wars collaborated on the track "Safe and Sound," which is featured on the soundtrack for the movie The Hunger Games.

    Taylor's final moment on last night's GRAMMY stage was to pass the performance torch to fellow BMLG artists The Band Perry, who performed a lively version of Glen Campbell's "Gentle on My Mind" in tribute to the legendary country crooner, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The Band Perry also joined Campbell and Blake Shelton on stage for a version of Campbell's "Rhinestone Cowboy" that had everyone dancing in the aisles.

    We couldn't be prouder of our artists and the hard work and talent they put into their music, and we're happy the GRAMMYs allowed us to share a taste of that last night.
