Edge Records and Lofton Creek Combine Efforts

Edge Records artist Kelly Parkes has signed a promotion agreement with Lofton Creek Records for a full secondary promotion campaign to MusicRow and New Music Weekly stations on her debut single, “Nothin’ Good Ever Happens After Midnight.” Lofton Creek Records will be responsible for promoting the song to country radio on a national basis.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Kelly Parkes with the MusicRow and New Music Weekly panel,” says Lofton Creek Records President, Mike Borchetta. “This will give her the jump start to what we at Lofton Creek feel will be the start of a very successful career.

GM and National Promotions manager, Mark Maynard said of the project, “Kelly Parkes is a song’s best friend, she knows how to pick the right ones that suit her voice and style, then puts her own special touch on them.”

The Pennsylvania-born Parkes moved to Nashville in 2008, began networking in the industry and worked the mandatory “day job” at night. Two years later, her determination and sacrifice paid off.

“In today’s world of American Idol and overnight stars, little girls grow up thinking that all you have to do is sing and you’ll be noticed, Parkes says. “Not true. To establish a career, it takes a lot of work, and the work continues.”

“Nothin’ Good Ever Happens After Midnight “will be made available to radio on the June 7, CDX # 501.
