Reba McEntire has become the first artist signed to Nash Icon Music, a joint venture between Big Machine Label Group and Cumulus Media. The multi-talented entertainer made the announcement Tuesday morning (Oct. 21) on Blair Garner’s America’s Morning Show.
McEntire is in the studio working on a new project with producers Tony Brown and James Stroud, and has 11 songs cut for the new album. “I’ve got three more to record that I have found,” she told Garner. “I’m always trying to beat out what I have already, so we just keep looking.”
McEntire released her first music in 1976, and has gone on to record numerous chart-topping songs, including signature songs such as “Is There Life Out There,” “The Heart Won’t Lie,” “Does He Love You” and numerous others. Her most recent chart-topper was 2010’s “Turn On The Radio.”
McEntire signed to BMLG’s The Valory Music Co. in 2008.
Earlier this year, Cumulus and Big Machine Label Group entered a strategic partnership to create NASH Icon, which includes the launch of the label and a live events business. The venture showcases Nashville’s talent from the past 25 years, and will release future recordings by those artists. The label complements the NASH Icons branding on some of Cumulus’ owned-and-operated radio stations.
