BBR Music Group Switches Distribution To ADA

BMG has switched worldwide distribution of its Nashville-based BBR Music Group to ADA, the independent distribution and services arm of Warner Music Group (WMG). The deal follows the partnership launched between ADA and BMG in 2016, as well as BMG’s subsequent acquisition of BBR Music Group.

ADA, which launched in 1993 to focus on the independent music industry, will dedicate distribution, marketing and label service resources in Nashville and globally to promote BBR Music Group artists.

BBR Music Group includes labels Broken Bow Records, Stoney Creek Records, and Wheelhouse Records labels.

ADA’s first release with BBR Music Group is Current Mood, the third studio album by Dustin Lynch. Upcoming BBR Music Group releases include Granger Smith’s When The Good Guys Win and Chase Rice’s Lambs & Lions.

Eliah Seton, President of ADA Worldwide, commented: “Broken Bow is a powerhouse, and we are looking forward to working closely with Jon Loba and the whole BBR Music Group team to make sure country music fans have access to their special brand of music not just locally, but nationally and internationally as well. We are doubling down on ADA’s efforts in Nashville, with new staff and resources, and look forward to contributing to the rapid growth in the city.”

Jon Loba, EVP of BBR Music Group, said, “Becoming part of BMG has allowed us to scale up our ambition both in the US and internationally. We are excited to now be able to enjoy the benefits of BMG’s partnership with ADA.”

BMG EVP Rights Administration Ben Katovsky, who is responsible for the company’s supply chain worldwide, said, “Bringing BBR Music Group on board is the logical next step in the consolidation of BMG’s distribution at ADA. We look forward to ADA helping us take BBR Music Group’s extraordinary roster to the next level.”
