Country Road Management (CRM), the company behind CountryRoadTV.com, (CRTV), and Digitally Sound (the recorded music division of Nashville’s Straight 8 Entertainment), have launched Country Road Records.
Digitally Sound will handle global distribution and retail marketing via their partnership with The Orchard. CRM will serve as the promotional arm of the label, using its CRTV network and media partnerships, including television partners “Small Town Big Deal” and Gabriel Communications (“Country’s Family Reunion” and “Larry’s Country Diner”).
Country Road Records, like its CRTV counter-part, will primarily focus on country music’s traditional realm (both vintage and new), including classic country music, bluegrass, and country gospel. Many of label’s mastered recordings will be gleaned and compiled from Gabriel Communications’ vast 2200-song performance catalog spanning over 20 years.
Country Road Records will ‘street’ its first album, Country’s Family Reunion Presents: Home for Christmas, on Black Friday, Nov. 23. The collection features live-to-tape, one-of-a-kind performances of holiday classics and heartfelt originals as seen on the television series, Country’s Family Reunion. The album highlights legendary performances by the who’s who of country, bluegrass, and gospel, including Joey + Rory, Bill Anderson, Rhonda Vincent, The Isaacs, members of the Scott Family, Ricky Skaggs with Sharon & Cheryl White, T. Graham Brown, Mandy Barnett, Jimmy Fortune, and William Lee Golden and Duane Allen of The Oak Ridge Boys.
