Jason Aldean has expanded and extended his partnership with BMG in a landmark new global deal beginning with his forthcoming new album, 9, to be released Nov. 22.
Under his previous deal with Broken Bow, the label held rights in the US and Canada. Under the new deal, BMG will now distribute and market Aldean’s releases worldwide, beginning with the new studio album to be released via Broken Bow Records/BMG. Broken Bow became part of BMG in 2017.
“I’m glad to have had BMG on board as part of the team the last couple years,” said Aldean. “It’s good to have them in my corner and I’m looking forward to keeping this thing going—and it’ll be cool if we get to pick up a few new fans overseas along the way.”
Jon Loba, EVP Recorded Music at BMG Nashville, said, “Jason Aldean is not only a genre-defining artist, he is family. We are immensely proud to have worked together since his debut single and are honored that he has placed in trust in BMG for this next exciting stage of his career.”
BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch said, “An artist of Jason Aldean’s stature has the choice of any label he wants. It was far from a given when we acquired Broken Bow that Jason would agree to extend his relationship with us. We are delighted that he has not only extended but expanded his partnership with BMG. We look forward to working with him and his exceptional management team.”
Aldean is a three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year, and the reigning ACM Artist of the Decade. He’s earned 23 No. 1 hits, and earned 15 billion streams as well as more than 18 million in album sales along the way. His previous full-length album, Rearview Town, was released via Broken Bow Records/BMG in 2018.
