Following the removal of Big Machine Label Group artist Taylor Swift‘s entire catalog of music from streaming music service Spotify, other artists are following that lead. As previously reported, Broken Bow artist Jason Aldean‘s latest album Old Boots, New Dirt was recently pulled from the service, though the rest of his catalog is still available.
Two additional BMLG artists have now had albums pulled from Spotify. Valory Music Co. artist Justin Moore‘ s 2013 album Off The Beaten Path is no longer available on the service, though his past catalog is still available. A note on Spotify states, “The artist or their representatives have decided not to release this album on Spotify. We are working on it and hope they will change their mind soon.”
A similar note is posted for Valory Music Co. artist Brantley Gilbert‘s 2014 album Just As I Am, though his 2010 album Halfway To Heaven (Deluxe Album) and 2009’s A Modern Day Prodigal Son are still available on Spotify. Initially, Just As I Am was kept from Spotify for 60 days after its release; the project has gone on to be certified gold.
