Copperline Music Group Signs John Schneider

Copperline Music Group has signed John Schneider to a multi-faceted agreement to include worldwide distribution, management, and booking.

“John is a diverse piece of American history–iconic as TV’s Bo Duke, an acclaimed singer-songwriter with multiple No. 1s, and a world-renowned Philanthropist as a founder of The Children’s Miracle Network. Our team at CMG is excited about representing John and continuing to grow his legacy,” says CMG Partner Rusty Harmon.

“I am very excited to be joining forces with Copperline,” Schneider says. “It’s nice in a world of conformity to be involved with people who think outside of the label! From distribution to management, videos to live performances, I am looking forward to great things out of this partnership.”

Copperline Music Group (CMG) will handle U.S. and International distribution for Schneider’s upcoming single releases including, “A Long Way From Lonely,” “Drinking Buddy,” “Cowboy’s Don’t Get Old,” and “Roy.” The first radio single slated to impact on June 5.

“John has an amazing talent that continues to entertain his fans worldwide,’ states CMG’s Head of A&R and Label Acquisitions Dewayne Brown. “With John’s upcoming projects we at CMG look forward to working with Alicia and the staff at Maven Entertainment as we continue to carry the true country music torch.”
