BBR Music Group‘s Jon Loba was featured prominently in The Tennessean’s Sunday Business section, discussing the relationship between country record labels and country radio. “When I got into the business, at my first CRS in 1997, I remember radio stations saying, “It is not our job to sell records. Our job is to keep listeners tuned in to our station. That is it. If we happen to sell records as a byproduct, that’s fantastic, but it’s not our job,'” said Loba.
