Producer Mickey Jack Cones has launched Cor Entertainment, including the subsidiaries Cor Music Publishing, and Cor Artist Services. The company has entered into a co-venture with Combustion Music.
The first artist signed to the new venture is duo Walker McGuire, which includes Jordan Walker of Vernon, Texas, and Johnny McGuire of Fairway, Kansas. The duo formed in 2012, and spent years performing at Nashville writers nights. The duo was featured by radio show hosts Big D and Bubba each week on the radio talent show, Chasin’ The Dream.
“I will definitely keep producing, but I’m branching out and able to have a little more creative control,” says Cones. “When you are just producing there are so many other elements that can make or break that album and artist. I feel I have new perspective to offer. I’ve been on the Rascal Flatts tour, I’ve done some tour management, I’ve been on radio tours. With the right act, I feel like I can bring all of that to the table to help streamline things where all these sidesteps are involved to get from A to Z.”
