Josh Abbott Band Inks Deal With Reviver Label Services’ 1608 Promotion
Josh Abbott Band has teamed with Reviver Label Services’ 1608 Promotion.
“If you take a look at what Josh Abbott Band has been able to do on their own – with their last two albums hitting the Top 10 on the Billboard Country Albums chart, you know that the fans really seem to register and identify with what they are doing musically. Taking that next step, and bringing their new radio single ‘Wasn’t That Drunk’ into the band’s story, is what we are going to do at Reviver,” said Reviver Label Services president David Ross.
The group’s new album, Front Row Seat, was released in November, and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart.
